04/05/16 – Robbinsdale, Crystal, and New Hope, Volunteer Recognition Breakfast

posted in: Past Event


Blue U volunteers were invited to a volunteer recognition breakfast hosted by schools in Robbinsdale, Crystal, Golden Valley, and Minneapolis. Around 300 volunteers as well as a number of district administrators and partners including the district superintendent and the mayors of Minneapolis, Crystal, and Robbinsdale participated in the event. The key note speaker was the former mayor of Minneapolis, R.T. Rybak, who started Generation Next, which is a coalition of civic, business, and education leaders from Minneapolis and St. Paul who are dedicated to closing achievement and opportunity gaps. The event was a wonderful networking opportunity and also a testament to the difference volunteers make in our local communities!
