Literacy Minnesota - VISTA Leaders (LitMN)
Follow your passions and find your purpose! We are seeking motivated individuals who are ready to think creatively to help fellow AmeriCorps VISTA members navigate and complete their service. Literacy Minnesota works to build a more equitable society by making quality literacy education available to all. We are a comprehensive literacy resource, providing free classes for adults and children; supporting literacy organizations through volunteer recruitment, training and teaching tools; and creating new pathways for groups and individuals to reach their full potential. Our programs and services are both local to Minnesota statewide, and national. We train and place AmeriCorps VISTA members in Minnesota through two service opportunities: Literacy Leadership and Summer Reads. In Literacy Leadership, about 20 members serve for one year behind-the-scenes in nonprofits, public agencies and Tribal Nations throughout Minnesota to create, enhance or expand literacy-focused programs for low-income, or immigrant or refugee children, youth, adults or families. In Summer Reads, about 70 AmeriCorps VISTA members serve statewide as K-5 children’s literacy mentors for 8 weeks over the summer, bringing literacy to life through fun and enriching activities like arts, drama, story-time, tutoring, recreation, and more. *TWO POSITIONS available. MUST HAVE completed at least one year of full-time national service (full-time AmeriCorps (1700 hours), VISTA, NCCC or Peace Corps) prior to start. ADDITIONAL BENEFITS: Individual professional development funds, monthly trainings, free seasonal produce shares with a local farm CSA, Employee Assistance Program and more. Applications reviewed on rolling basis until filled, preferred start 8/16/21. Alternates potentially available. Literacy Minnesota fosters an organizational culture that is welcoming and inclusive to all.
