Youth Leadership photos

The KIDS PLUS Twin Ports Youth Leadership Academy participants completed their 9-month leadership development experiences by planning and implementing an ambitious service project. The 45 ninth graders and 10 adult mentors from Duluth and Superior built an outdoor play area and organized fun children's activities at the Lake Superior Zoo. They also stained and filled raised garden beds for the Valley Youth Center located in West Duluth. Local people and visitors will enjoy these assets for years to come!

The Northland Foundation is able to offer Youth Leadership at no cost to young people or families thanks to the generosity of our funding partners. Thank you, Youth Leadership Academy and Project Sponsors, volunteer adult mentors, families, and amazing young leaders.
