Event Location: 
Via Webinar

A Minnesota Literacy Council VISTA Host Site information session will be conducted via webinar on Thursday, December 15th at 10:00 a.m. Please RSVP to, 651-251-9069. 

During this info session, we will cover

  • Goals and expectations of the literacy council’s VISTA programs
  • Whether your program is a good fit for an AmeriCorps VISTA project
  • Expectations for host sites
  • Tips to craft a successful project and application

Minnesota Literacy Council offers two VISTA programs: Literacy VISTA and Summer Reads. We will spend most of the information session talking about Literacy VISTA, and then will talk about Summer Reads at the end. If you aren’t eligible or interested in Summer Reads you are welcome to exit the webinar before that section of the presentation. If you are interested in both programs, you are welcome and encouraged to apply for both.
