ReGENerate is MN8’s youth program focused on the new possibilities and deep restoration that can happen when young people lead. ReGENerate is co-created by youth, for youth! This program takes place over the summer through weekly Saturday meetings and a 4 day-3 night retreat! This year is our third year of ReGENerate.

ReGENerate is a transformative space where young people can deepen their relationship with themselves and their communities by leaning into cultural identity, healing, and community care. In strengthening these connections, young people will also be able to discover and step into their full power to recognize and address systems of oppression and harm that impact their communities. Youth will gain and practice skills such as organizing, advocacy, and transformative justice. ReGENerate aims to create a nutrient-rich soil space where youth can root themselves and powerfully contribute to building a world that is free and just.

This program is free and all participants will receive a $500 stipend upon completion. Transportation will be provided to those who need it. This is an in-person program. Meeting locations may vary from week to week but will take place in Saint Paul or the nearby metro areas. Applications for the 2024 summer program closed on May 3, 2024.
