For Our Alumni

Learn more and get connected for broader and deeper impact.

You probably remember that favorite Blandin leadership adage: Leadership – you have to do it yourself, but you can’t do it alone.

We thank you for your hope and selfless service to your community. And we hope these tools strengthen and equip you to keep on with the complex, important work of building healthy community.

You are the leaders we’ve been waiting for.

More Training Opportunities

Identifying and including a community’s full spectrum of voices is among the most challenging — and valuable — work community leaders do.

Blandin Foundation offers community-wide training on two topics important to rural Minnesota communities. Each program builds a community’s capacity to talk about and build locally-based strategies for change.
