We are pleased to offer an exciting opportunity to host an AmeriCorps VISTA member through the Minnesota Literacy Council! A dedicated, full-time Literacy VISTA can help your organization create, expand or improve upon education and literacy-focused programming for children and youth.

We invite your organization to participate in this annual competitive selection process. The deadline to submit a proposal is Tuesday, February 3rd (5:00 p.m.).
