Attention, emerging leaders! Join MPR Generation Listen’s founding board and shape a thoughtful new initiative.

We’re calling on big thinkers, entrepreneurs, and influencers in our community who are passionate about creating a more informed and civically engaged public. If you’re an expert in your field, have a knack for community building and could help us lead, launch, and expand our program in its first year, we want you.

MPR Generation Listen is a thoughtful initiative started by millennials aspiring to connect people under 35 more deeply with Minnesota Public Radio and each other. We will provide Minnesota’s young professionals with a fun series of social, cultural, and educational events where like-minded individuals can meet and share meaningful experiences.

The deadline to apply is March 1st, 2016.

Program Elements

Once we’ve established our core group, we will create formalized commitments, roles, guidelines, and responsibilities. As we are in the startup phase of development, the framework and board structure may evolve over time.
