Shine On! Young Leaders Rising is a student driven, student led board sponsored by Minneapolis Public Schools Community Education. This Youth Editorial Board comprised of high school students from around the district makes all of the decisions related to their website. Their passion is to write on topics that matter, to raise awareness on issues that affect the youth in their community, to create service-learning opportunities to address those issues and to create a website that makes their community proud of the youth in Minneapolis Public Schools.
The mission of Shine On! is to entrust our youth to address the issues of relevance for their generation, empower them to use their voice to speak out about such issues, while inspiring those around them to seek, create, and become the change they wish to see within their respective communities and abroad.
