Volunteer Recruitment and Management

Need

In Minnesota, the value of one volunteer hour is $20.90. This means a volunteer assisting in a three-hour class once a week provides $3,260.40 worth of service per year.

Services

We provide placement assistance to adults seeking literacy volunteer opportunities, and we support literacy programs across the state with guidance in volunteer recruitment and management.
