NDC is an exciting, growing nonprofit that’s made its mark on the social and economic fabric of the Twin Cities. As a leader in community economic development, NDC and its successful micro-enterprise model have proven to serve as a catalyst for building vibrant, thriving communities and stabilizing local economies. NDC’s mission and services are only made possible by neighborhood partnerships and through the support of individuals.
Volunteer and Internships
NDC utilizes volunteer and interns in a variety of ways to support the work of the organization. Volunteers and interns can have opportunities to assist certain departments like accounting, training, and business services, participate on a committee or help plan and implement events and an annual fundraising breakfast in September.
Local organizations who are interested in developing entrepreneurs within NDC’s priority neighborhoods can team up with us as business training partners.
At both the state and city level, government organizations have seen the value of NDC’s work for their citizens and neighborhoods. We welcome partnerships at all levels to continue and enhance our work.
Real Estate Partnerships
NDC, in partnership with local organizations, transforms vacant or abandoned buildings into stable, affordable places to do business, while revitalizing the surrounding communities.
