Join Our Board of Directors

Interested In Joining Our Board?

We are looking for amazing Board candidates that can become an EMERGE ambassador, contribute to active governance, attend meetings and assist in EMERGE events, support and connect others to the organization. Individuals who live or work in the communities we support and partner with, or who have similar lived experience are strongly encouraged to apply. EMERGE works in the heart of North Minneapolis and Cedar-Riverside, neighborhoods rich in human power, diversity and culture, but that also struggle with the metro area’s highest rates of unemployment. EMERGE also has two Social Enterprise businesses in NE and SE Minneapolis that create 100+ transitional jobs annually while providing services in mattress recycling and furniture resale. Every year, EMERGE helps thousands of people access jobs, career training, financial coaching, and other services along pathways to brighter futures. Please see for more information.
