Leadership Breakfast with Michael Goar

About The Leadership Breakfast Series

Looking to get to the next level in your nonprofit career? At YNPN Twin Cities' Leadership Breakfast series, nonprofit Executive Directors and other leaders will share with you exactly how they did it, what they learned and what they're looking for in a rising nonprofit leader.

A little bit about Michael Goar, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Twin Cities:


michael_goar.jpegIn June 2016, Michael Goar took the helm as CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Twin Cities, a nearly 100-year-old organization that has provided half a million Minnesota children facing adversity with one-to-one mentoring relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

Goar has an extensive background in education, including serving as CEO and Interim Superintendent of Minneapolis Public Schools prior to leading Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Twin Cities. His work at the school district included launching the office of Black Male Achievement.  He’s also been Executive Director of Generation Next, a Minneapolis-based youth development organization that works to close the achievement gap.

Earlier in his career, Goar held executive positions and COO roles for both Boston Public Schools and Memphis City Schools.  He has a bachelor’s degree in business administration and urban studies from the University of Wisconsin River Falls and a master’s degree in public administration from Mankato State University.  Goar holds a superintendent licensure and has participated in multiple intensive leadership development programs at Harvard University.

An active community member who is passionate about giving back, Goar serves on several boards of directors, including Generation Next, Mia (Minneapolis Institute of Arts), Twin Cities Public Television, the Ordway and the Association of Metropolitan School Districts (AMSD.)

Leadership Breakfast Registration Lottery

Registration for this event will be open from Thursday May 18 - Monday May 22. We allow as many people to sign up for the event as possible, and from there we choose 20 participants at random, while also holding space for young nonprofit professionals who identify as a person of color. We do this to keep these events intimate while ensuring everyone has a fair chance to attend a Leadership Breakfast event. If you registered for the lottery and identify as a person of color, you can email info@ynpntwincities.org to let us know to place your name in the correct lottery.

Our facilitator will reach out to all participants by Wednesday May 24 letting everyone know whether or not they received a spot through the lottery. Lottery winners will be asked to submit a question for our speaker in order to confirm their space. Unconfirmed spaces will be given to members of the wait list.

What you need to know:

  • Our media sponsor, Pollen, will be at the event with a photographer and writer on hand.
  • There will be a YNPN member on site to facilitate and help you get the most out of these discussions.
  • Bagels and coffee are provided!
