Equity Alliance MN partners with member school district middle and high schools that are interested in hosting an afterschool program for their students. Member districts and host schools can choose from standard afterschool programs, such as Lovin' the Skin I’m In or Synergy Social Justice Performing Arts for middle schools, and/or identify a customized afterschool program for middle or high schools.
Classroom Partnerships began in 2004. They are research-based, year-long educational exchanges funded through the MN Achievement and Integration Program, and include Equity Alliance MN members districts. Their goal is provide and promote integrated opportunities for students, families and staff that support academic achievement and expand cultural understanding.
