Lynn Giovannelli welcomed 19 guests to her warm home on a frigid January 11 evening to learn about GIVING WoMN and to meet representatives from Rêve Academy, a 2015 grant recipient.
Rêve Academy takes its name from the French word “rêve,” which means dream. Its mission is to help students “dream with direction” by providing pathways to digital careers. The organization offers a curriculum that helps student master skills in three areas: business, technology, and design. It shares this curriculum with local schools, particularly those on the North side of Minneapolis, focusing on digital skills that prepare students for professional careers in high-demand fields. Speakers at Lynn’s January event were Kristin Pardue, Co-founder of Rêve Academy and CEO of Rêve Consulting, and Mandy Janssen. Mandy is responsible for Rêve Academy’s innovative educational programs and the delivery of educational outcomes. They spoke about growing the organization’s work in local schools and in the North side community.
