Defining a Nest: "A nest is a complex interwoven structure that supports development and provides a site for nurture, learning and growth. At SLP Nest, young people are free to communicate and connect with each other, learn leadership and practical skills and express themselves in a loose framework that is both safe and open. A nest also must be grounded and connected to the roots of a diverse community that is essential to its support and sustainability through financial and in-kind contributions."
-- Marilyn Carnell, SLP Nest volunteer
If the SLP NEST is to continue to grow and benefit the community, we need you: vested community members who will support us—the youth and future of St. Louis Park. Donations can be made via PayPal. Please scroll down for company donation information.
