The Minnesota Young American Leaders Program
MYALP 2024 is open for nominations and applications. Interested nominators and attendees should follow the nomination guidance below by October 31 and November 14, respectively.
Since 2015, the Itasca Project has sent cohorts of ten rising leaders to Harvard Business School for the Young American Leaders Program. In 2019, the Itasca Project partnered with the Center for Integrative Leadership at the University of Minnesota to create the Minnesota Young American Leaders Program, which is inspired by the HBS Program. The two programs share themes, content, and some speakers. Both focus on the US and regional competitiveness, shared prosperity, and cross-sector collaborations; both programs seek to create relationships among civically focused rising leaders in our region.
MYALP will hold its 5th annual conference from May 19-22, 2024 at the University of Minnesota.This year, MYALP will be welcoming cohorts from Greater Mankato, Greater Fargo-Moorhead, Greater Minnapolis-St. Paul, Greater Rochester, Greater St. Cloud, and Northeast MN. There is no cost to participants to attend this program – lodging and travel expenses are also covered.
Additional information on the program can be found on the Center for Integrative Leadership’s MYALP website and the Itasca Project’s website. Thank you for taking the time to nominate a rising leader for this program.
