Children’s Performing Arts

http://www.childrensperformingartsmn.org

Our mission is to provide a platform to explore the world of artistic expression for children and their community. We do this by providing quality educational, theatrical experiences, which enhance children’s self-confidence, personal growth, group collaboration and community partnerships. We provide a safe, nurturing environment for children while developing confidence, expression, and theatrical talents through a structured theater arts program.

We are looking for people that can help facilitate development and fundraising to promote CPA's growth. We are looking for board members from all fields and backgrounds with an interest and passion for theater, education, community, and volunteerism. Leadership experience in business or community organizations is a plus. Skills in any of the following areas could be an asset: grant writing, communications, marketing, fundraising, development, event planning, community networking, bookkeeping, volunteerism, and/or nonprofit management or board experience.
