who we are

Minnesota MILE (Motivating and Inspiring Leadership and Excellence) was formed to identify outstanding high school sophomores throughout Minnesota for being responsible citizens in their community and/or school and provide them with the opportunity and encouragement to recognize their leadership potential.


Leadership come in all shapes and sizes, from rich and poor, and from every city, town and neighborhood. We seek potential leaders without regard for the past achievements, economic advantage, or prior leadership experience. We specialize in finding “diamonds in the rough,” and helping them explore their innate strengths so they can realize their potential and become more effective leaders.

We challenge our students to not only think for themselves, but to think critically. To not only better themselves, but also inspire those around them to do the same. To become assets in their community and promote their attitudes in leadership where ever they go.
