Providing exposure and discovering interest.

Now is the time and Minneapolis/St. Paul is the place.

From a global pandemic that challenged organizational structures and workforce perspective to the horrific death of George Floyd, Minneapolis/St. Paul is under a national microscope. How will we respond? Established in 2021, InspireMSP utilizes the passions of the community to create a new system. We are not exclusive to MSP, but this is where we rise from.

Our Mission.

Connecting the power of imagination with the practice of exploration to create boundless opportunities that change lives and communities.

Our Vision.

InspireMSP is built on the belief that a highly collaborative approach creates the strongest network for our students — resulting in the most significant systems change for students and the industry as a whole. InspireMSP delivers extraordinary experiences for historically excluded students by utilizing creative professionals, organizations, and a collection of supportive resources to champion career pathways.

Experience begins in 6th grade and continues through 12th grade.

We always invite others to help shine a light and participate in the important work InspireMSP is doing.

About the founder, Dan Ryan.

Born in Falcon Heights, Minnesota, Dan learned early on that the unearned advantage he received from birth needed to be shared with an ever-widening circle of people. Now, as a spouse and father, he feels this drive even more — combining his nonprofit volunteering experience with a profound passion for connecting organizational strengths. All to benefit and strengthen those involved in InspireMSP.

Dan believes if there’s one place we can call the hub of connecting opportunities and talents for all, it’s MSP. He’s excited to partner with anyone who shares his vocation.
