Project Overview

Partner Organization: Amherst H. Wilder Foundation.

The Minnesota Historical Society is partnering with the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation to continue the Neighborhood Leadership Program, an initiative that develops leadership skills of community members to take effective action.

Through ACHF funding, the program agenda has been expanded to include sessions integrating historical resources, lessons and visits to the Minnesota History Center, providing participants with greater access and awareness of the Society's resources.

Approximately 30 diverse community members from St. Paul participate in the six-month program each year. By participating in history-related programming and discussions hosted by the Society, participants learn about the diverse history of St. Paul and come away with a deeper understanding of their unique roles as they take action to improve their community.

A final project report finds this partnership has had a positive impact on NLP participants, coaches and the broader community.
