CTEP at Saint Paul Public Library - Rondo
The AmeriCorps Community Technology Empowerment Project (CTEP) bridges the "digital divide" for new Immigrants and low-income communities in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Residents come to the Rondo Community Outreach Library, newly opened in 2006, to work on career plans, create resumes, search for jobs, work towards educational goals, gain technology skills, and a variety of other reasons. The member will carry out the daily goal of coordinating the work of a busy urban library computer lab to meet needs of diverse customers by providing technology-based classes, educational support, and information literacy workforce skill building. The Library’s mission is to anticipate and respond to the community’s need for information; to facilitate lifelong learning; to stimulate and nurture a desire to read in young people; to provide reading materials to meet the interests of all ages; and to enrich the quality of life in the community. The work of the CTEP member supports this overall mission. In addition, members attend professional development days with their fellow CTEP members to enhance service-readiness skills, personal attributes in the workplace, and citizenship skills. These Corps days take place twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Fridays from 9 AM to 4 PM, and these trainings are mandatory. Members also attend statewide AmeriCorps events, such as the Martin Luther King Day celebration, and/or serve on the statewide InterCorps Council.
