Advisory Council

The Advisory Council is a volunteer board that leads the organization in achieving its goals of engaging educators and the public as well as lobbying the Minnesota Legislature and Department of Education to include 21st century skills in Minnesota curricula. We typically meet once per month via web conference.

New members are always welcome. If you are passionate about helping our students be more successful, contact any of our Advisory Council members about joining us.
