It's hard to be great at everything.

New year, new blog features! After many successful years of our Literacy Leader feature, we've decided to introduce a new feature for 2018 called Share Your Voice so we can hear directly from you – our incredible volunteers. We know your time as a volunteer has an incredible impact on students and communities across the state. But how has being a volunteer had an impact on you? We’d love to know! This is your chance to share the joys, challenges and everything in between from your life as a volunteer.

What is your favorite thing about volunteering? As a black male, my favorite thing about volunteering is being able to give back and provide resources to students of color who are unware of the resources that are out there, like résumé building, job training, college readiness, GED classes, and mentor programs – a lot students are unaware that these services are available.

What is your favorite thing about volunteering? I love getting to know people I wouldn’t have met otherwise. The world is a big place and there’s so much to see and learn – volunteering is a way for me to meet a few more people and learn about their experiences.

'Tis the season for email scams. Actually they happen every day of the year but I thought it would be a good time show an actual one that happened today. To me. 

I opened my email today and found this.

National Digital Inclusion Alliance logo

While much of the countrys' politcal news has concerned Senate races and tax bills, the FCC will soon vote on changes that could greatly affect everyones' access to the internet . One of many organizations working to make sure the internet is a open system is the National Digital Inclusion Alliance. While I always recommend investigating issues from both sides I do think their website is a great resource for digital literacy resources.

Burma is home to more than 135 different ethnic groups, each with its own culture, values, history and language. Over the past 15 years, refugees from Burma have resettled in Minnesota. Today, there are more than 12,000 Karen people live in Minnesota, making it the largest Karen community in the country. Minnesota is also home to more than 1,000 refugees from other ethnic groups in Burma. Refugees from Burma come to Minnesota for the same reasons many people do: to find good jobs, access high-quality education, and connect with a strong community.
