Volunteer Vision Statement

The Minnesota Literacy Council believes volunteers are vital to the success of students and literacy programs.  We believe volunteers bring optimism and enthusiasm, create positive energy, and share diverse perspectives that lead to enhanced learning outcomes for students.  We strive to create learning environments where volunteers:

  • Contribute in meaningful ways to student success
  • Reflect the diverse communities they serve
  • Are valued for their unique abilities
  • Are trained, mentored and supported in their work
  • Have the opportunity to develop their skills as literacy practitioners
  • Are empowered to advocate for literacy in their communities
