Believe It. Build It. was shaped by contributions from afterschool stakeholders all across Minnesota – it proves that our network can make great things happen when we work together.
We’re calling on the power of our network again, and inviting you to participate in a statewide contest to discover the best ideas and approaches to implementing Believe It. Build It. in afterschool and summer learning programs across Minnesota!
