“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you.
What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”
– Jane Goodall
Volunteers (like you) are essential to the success of our mission: to develop the literacy skills of adults so they can achieve their goals, improve their lives, and impact our community. There are many ways you can contribute:
Volunteer Tutors/Instructors are the backbone of MN2R. They meet with our adult students in one-to-one, small group, or small class settings and provide instruction, encouragement, and feedback. Tutors receive special training in adult education, English language instruction, and cultural sensitivity. They are also provided with continual support and resources by the MN2R staff. No prior teaching experience is necessary.
Technology Tutors specialize in helping adult students develop their digital literacy skills in a small class setting. Training and self-paced software is provided to aid in instruction, and volunteers are provided with continual support and resources by the MN2R staff. No prior teaching experience is necessary.
Support Volunteers assist staff with day-to-day administrative tasks and special projects. These volunteers may help in the office with mail-outs, filing, inventory, etc.
Special event volunteers assist staff in preparing for and working events, such as our annual fundraiser(s). Volunteers can assist with planning prior to an event or with other responsibilities (like decorating) the day of the event.
