This Thursday, young leaders here in the Northland will get their own special day.
Young Leaders Fund board members Lynne Williams and Branden Robinson stopped by Good Morning Northland to talk about Young Leaders Day, which happens this Thursday.
Both mayors from Duluth and Superior will proclaim Thursday Young Leaders Day at 10 a.m. at Zeitgeist Arts in Duluth. A special event will be also be held there from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. It features free local music, a performance from Renegade Comedy Theater, and free local food and beer.
The Young Leaders Fund was created to address a couple of misconceptions young adult have about the area, Robinson said. The first is that there are not any job opportunities for young professionals in the Northland. The other is that there are no leadership roles for young people here.
