“Leadership is not about you; it's about investing in the growth of others." —Ken Blanchard
LeadMN is currently in stages of Alumni Association redevelopment in order to get support of graduates in widening the capacity building of stronger civic engagement, youth development, and evolving communities. Alumni have the power of motivating, inspiring and making contributions into positive changes in the lives of young people by sharing their success stories. Additionally, the LeadMN is excited at prospects of future opportunities to connect with and work alongside international alumni networks.
