Advisory Council

• • •

The work of GradMinnesota is directed by an Advisory Council of stakeholders including youth, nonprofit and business leaders, parents, teachers, administrators and government employees.  The Advisory Council convenes partners’ voices, providing perspective and sharing best practices, programs and ideas.

The Advisory Council convenes bimonthly around one of the seven priority recommendations.  Each meeting features a keynote speaker and opportunities for networking, discussion, brainstorming and sharing.

Advisory Council meetings are open to all- please come and add your voice to the coalition of community members working to help our student succeed!
