Events & Opportunities

Ignite Afterschool connects communities across Minnesota in the shared effort to provide engaging, hands-on activities to all young people outside of the school day. This collective effort grows stronger whenever we have the opportunity to meet up and work together on the issues we face in our individual work, in our communities, and across Minnesota.

This page serves as the community board where those opportunities are posted. You’ll find the latest job opportunities, trainings, working meetings, and other events from Ignite Afterschool, its network partners, and youth-serving organizations that align with our network goals. Our staff will update the page with official network events, but we encourage network partners and community organizations to post any events or opportunities, provided they meet our submission guidelines. Of course, if you're just here to view the latest opportunities and events, keep scrolling!
