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

Do you want to make a positive, long-term change that will have an impact on individuals, their families, and ultimately our community? We do, too!

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:

One-to-One Tutors:

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.

Class Instructors:

Instructors lead small group classes (8-10 students) at the Literacy House focusing on specific subjects (ESL, 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 that include mail-outs, filing, inventory, etc.

Fundraiser Volunteers:
