The Minnesota Young American Leaders Program
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 be held May 22-24, 2023 at the University of Minnesota. 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 for additional information. Thank you for taking the time to nominate a rising leader for this program.
Eight Greater Mankato residents have been chosen for the 2023 cohort of the Minnesota Young American Leaders Program. Hosted by the Center for Integrative Leadership at the University of Minnesota alongside Harvard Business School and the Itasca Project, this program will teach young leaders about how to work across sectors to help their communities prosper inclusively.
