Follow your passions and find your purpose! We are seeking motivated individuals who are ready to think creatively to help organizations develop, expand or enhance high-quality literacy services. You will be part of a statewide cohort of about 20 AmeriCorps VISTA members with Literacy Minnesota’s Literacy Leadership program, with opportunities to network, collaborate, learn and serve together. *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 Summer Reads, AmeriCorps VISTA members serve 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. *ADDITIONAL BENEFITS: Literacy Leaders receive individual professional development funds, monthly trainings, free seasonal produce shares with local farm CSAs, an Employee Assistance Program and more. Some individual host sites may provide additional benefits, such as housing assistance or emergency funds.
