“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 enhance lives of Midland County adults through literacy. As a volunteer, there are many ways you can contribute. The following opportunities are available:
Tutors assist students in one-to-one settings. All training, materials, and support are provided by the MN2R staff. No prior teaching experience is necessary.
Instructors lead small group classes (8-12 students) at the Literacy House and approved community partner locations, focusing on specific subjects (ELL, grammar, mathematics, and more). All training, materials, and support are provided by the MN2R staff. No prior teaching experience is necessary.
Literacy House Volunteers:
Literacy House volunteers may help in the office with various special projects: mail-outs, filing, inventory, etc.
MN2R hosts at least two major fundraising events annually. Volunteers can assist with planning prior to an event or with other responsibilities (like decorating) the day of the event.
*Midland Need to Read is an approved agency for the Legacy Scholarship Program through Midland College. Students may fulfill their scholarship hour requirement with MN2R. http://www.midland.edu/for_the_community/legacy/legacy_studentwhere.php#m
