Northwest Passage HS will host the next IDEA MN meeting on February 15th from 10:00 am - 12:30. Anyone interested in learning more about IDEA MN and/or Northwest Passage High School is invited to attend.


"IDEA MN formed in December 2013, when the national organization IDEA (Institute for Democratic Education in America) committed the modest resources to seed a site based team in Minnesota. Since then, we have formed a strong cohort of volunteer youth workers, educators, youth, and community members who are committed to education that is meaningful to young people and their communities.  


IDEA MN gets together monthly at events we entitled: Salons - an assembly of guests in such a room, especially an assembly, common during the 17th and 18th centuries, consisting of the leaders in society, art, politics, etc” - Dictionary.com. Based on the work at a planning session at the Learning Breakthrough Series in Jackson, MS, we moved to version 2.0 of our work, adding showcasing to our monthly Salon meetings. Every month, we convene at a different location from 10:00 am-12:30 pm, giving our host the chance to tell us about their work for 45 minutes of the time we spend together."
