About The Leadership Breakfast Series
Looking to get to the next level in your nonprofit career? At YNPN Twin Cities' Leadership Breakfast series, nonprofit 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 Sondra Samuels:
Sondra Samuels is the President & CEO of the Northside Achievement Zone (NAZ), a collaborative of over 40 partner nonprofits and schools. Along with parents, students, partners, and staff, Sondra is leading a revolutionary culture shift in North Minneapolis focused on ending multi-generational poverty through education and family stability. The NAZ Collaborative is working toward a single goal—to prepare low-income North Minneapolis children to graduate from high school college- and career-ready. NAZ has scaled up in support of over 1,000 parents and 2,300 students as they turn the social service model on its head and lead the creation of a college-bound culture throughout the community.
Leadership Breakfast Registration Lottery
Registration for this event will be open from Monday, October 22 through Friday, October 26. We allow as many people to sign up for the event as possible, and from there we choose 25 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 firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know to place your name in the correct lottery.
Our facilitator will reach out to all participants by Monday, October 29 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.
National Philanthropy Day
This special Leadership Breakfast is part of the annual National Philanthropy Day celebration, hosted by the Association of Fundraising Professions-Minnesota Chapter. It's basically a BIG party to celebrate our incredible nonprofit community and the donors, volunteers, and leaders who make it all possible. You are invited to stick around for the Education Session featuring Kay Sprinkel Grace and the Awards Luncheon. All events will be held at the JW Marriott Mall of America in Bloomington. AFP is offering a special discount to the first 10 YNPN members who register for National Philanthropy Day! For just $35, you can attend both events (regularly $95), or sign up for the Education Session only for $10 (regularly $40)."
- Our media sponsor, Pollen, will be at the event with a photographer and writer on hand.
