Literacy Minnesota - Distance Learning project (LitMN)
Literacy Minnesota started in a Roseville church basement in 1972 when a group of women realized if one person taught someone to read, and that person taught someone to read, they could create a movement. They knew that literacy is critical to growth and self-sufficiency, and planted the seed for reading programs and statewide volunteer training. Today we are able to reach nearly 70,000 children and adults each year thanks in great part to the more than 2,000 volunteers and 100 national service members we train annually by supporting literacy programs throughout Minnesota. Literacy Minnesota serves over 1800 ABE students per year at our six Learning Centers in St. Paul and Minneapolis. We offer classes in English language learning, GED and pre-GED, citizenship, computer and job skills. The average poverty rate in the neighborhoods we serve is 22.4%, while the average number of adults without a High School education is 16%. Due to recent shifts in how Minnesota Adult Basic Education (ABE) is able to offer classes (largely because of the COVID-19 pandemic), we are seeing an increased need in the area of Distance Learning. Both educators and learners need assistance accessing and navigating distance learning apps/platforms and procedures. This position would work closely with state and local leaders to build capacity around distance learning programming for adult learners. Join us!
