Advanced Methods Academy

The Roy Wilkins Center, with the support of Minneapolis Foundation, will host in 2018 an advanced training program for the four cohorts of graduates of the Wilkins Community Fellows "bootcamp."

The training comprises workshops designed to help cohort graduates develop strategies to advance agendas on remedies to racial and economic inequalities in a heterogeneous and culturally less familiar environment and in a political setting.

Workshops will be during held during the summer of 2018 (dates TBD)
