NorthStar Fellowship

Celebrate our 2018 NorthStar Fellows!

The NorthStar Youth Worker Fellowship invites you to our 6th Annual Presentation of Papers.

Join us to hear community practitioners lay out their ideas to strengthen the field of youth work and present practical recommendations formed after spending a year with a cohort studying, reflecting and then writing about an issue that can inform future youth work practice in Minnesota. Be part of this important conversation!

Please join us in congratulating the group on completion of this challenging process. We know you will find their reflections timely, useful and thought-provoking.
Wednesday, June 13, 2018

Please RSVP through Eventbrite.
The NorthStar Fellowship is sponsored by the Minnesota Department of Education, Youthprise, Sprockets, Ignite Afterschool and the University of Minnesota Extension Center for Youth Development. It is designed to support mid-career youth work professionals in enhancing their leadership and voice in the field of youth work.
