Being a leader isn’t about having a title but assuming responsibility, responding to crises, and being proactive. STLF provides first-chance opportunities for this kind of leadership.
STLF recently hosted our two winter training events for college students. (You may have experienced one for yourself.) These events are called DWB North and DWB South.
Hear about the tours on the road this month, and some brief impact statements by college students.
Tour shirts are a big part of STLF’s culture. They’re important, and deserve to look the part.
STLF combats this by mixing cliques, providing common experiences and a safe community.
Compete for STLF beginning February 24th in the Brackets for Good Challenge.
To ensure wise, old blogs the attention they deserve, we have added this new series: From the Archives!
STLF had the opportunity to train the Student Council leaders from all Minneapolis Public Schools, a new and rewarding program!
Success and specifics for the curious supporter
Isaiah's reflects on what brought him to the STLF team.
Empathy matters now more than ever. The strength of character to listen, withhold judgement, and seek understanding matters now more than ever. The capacity to care more about people than ideas matters now more than ever. For 13 years STLF has been building empathy in young people, and it matters now more than ever.
Isaiah's thoughts on joining the STLF team.
What do STLF, Saturday Night Live, Give To the Max Day, and the hit musical Hamilton all have in common? The STLF Livestream!
In honor of STLF’s 13th birthday I will be writing my blog series on some of the 13 Staples of STLF. These staples are our fun way of describing the culture and character of STLF. I’ll be talking about these, in no specific order, specifically how they relate to my life in the office and on tour.
Give To the Max Day is one month away and we are excited about it! Like…very excited about it. Give To the Max Day is STLF’s biggest fundraiser of 2016! STLF raises $110 for each student who participates in our programs and we need your support. Your gifts provide students with opportunity, a place-to-belong, and action-inspiring programs.
Meet STLF's staff members - we are a fun bunch!
Alec explains how he ended up applying for the position of Programs Fellow through STLF.
2,434 days ago I applied for STLF Co-Executive Director of Development position. Now, more than 3.5 million minutes later, it is my time to transition out of STLF. I am excited and optimistic about STLF’s future and proud of what we've accomplished over the last six years.
