At NEON, our volunteers are critical to our success. We need your time, energy and talents to help expand economic opportunities and build wealth for North Minneapolis residents!

We do this through the creation, growth and development of small businesses in the North Minneapolis area. We know, that with your help, we can continue to create business development wins for our clients.


There are a few different ways you can volunteer with NEON and you can pick more than one opportunity. You can be a:


Business Consultant

You will offer industry-specific assistance in areas of your expertise. Examples may include tax preparation, graphic design, recipe costing, branding and more. These volunteers provide services at their convenience. NEON will match program participants with these providers when the services are offered.


Event Support Volunteer

You will help support NEON’s events. Event planner volunteers will staff events, help with logistics and lend their expertise to help create exciting events.



You will be paired with a specific client in order to target development in an area of need. Mentors will address macro-issues like marketing, business planning and general emotional support for new entrepreneurs. These volunteers will schedule their own meetings with program participants and will report back to NEON staff regularly.


General Volunteer

You get the opportunity to help with almost anything! There are opportunities to help with event planning, administration, fundraising and other tasks as needed.


The great thing is you can decide where and when you want to volunteer. Pick the role(s) that best suits your skills and availability. Additionally, qualified volunteers may be asked to join our advisory committee, responsible for the interview process for applicant businesses.


If you would like to join our volunteer program or have questions, please complete the form to the right. A member of NEON’s team will be in touch with you soon!
