No matter who you are, stepping up to serve your community is more than a selfless act, it's a strong exprssion of hope. So whether you're leading, or supporting local leaders, rural Minnesota is stronger for it.
To the more than 6,000 rural leaders we have met over 25-plus years of the Blandin Community Leadership Programs (BCLP), thank you for your partnership. Your leadership matters.
We welcome your community to consider inviting us in.
The nationally recognized BCLP program couples residential retreats with ongoing workshops to build participants’ competencies in three major areas:
- Framing opportunities and challenges that lead to effective action
- Building social capital for collaboration and resource sharing, and
- Mobilizing a critical mass of resources to achieve specific outcomes.
We also conduct programs around specific topics, including poverty and leadership in ethnically diverse communities.
