MINN Sponsored and Other Local Events
There are many great events in the Twin Cities for practitioners interested in international nongovernmental work! We try to keep up on these events and post them here. On this page, you will also find MINN-hosted events. If there is an event that you would like to see posted here, please fill out this form.
With co-sponsorship, MINN can help promote or put on an event! Get answers about the different kinds of co-sponsorship, what they involve, and their benefits here.
The first international NGO to open its doors to MINN’s Talk and Tours is the Center for Victims of Torture (CVT). CVT is a St. Paul-based international organization providing direct care to survivors of torture and war trauma in the United States, Africa and the Middle East, and working toward a future where torture ceases to exist.
Join us for a panel discussion about international volunteer and study opportunities. Learn what type program best fits your interests and get ready to go abroad. With the rise of voluntourism and volunteer service learning what are some of the different perspectives we should consider? For example, what do those within the communities who are accepting volunteers think about the work they are doing? Discussion will be led by Molly Stern from Global Citizens Network, Brianna Jensen from Common Hope and Therese Dosch Anderson from Give Us Wings. Event is free for MINN members.
The Caux Round Table is hosting a special program and reception to honor Brian Atwood, who is leaving Minnesota, to thank him for his leadership, dedication and service to our state and country. MINN is co-sponsoring the event and we would like to invite you to join us.
