Annual Volunteer Information Report

Members of the literacy council's Volunteer Literacy Program Network submit the Volunteer Information Report each year as a requirement of membership. Their submissions are compiled by the literacy council to document the valuable contributions volunteers make to adult literacy each year. The involvement of volunteers demonstrates that adult literacy is important to the community and Minnesotans are willing to invest in education. Because of their efforts, adult learners receive the individualized help they need to be successful. We are truly fortunate to live in a state where the community has made such a commitment to adult literacy.

  • 162 adult literacy program locations completed the report
  • 3,655 volunteers served in adult literacy programs statewide and contributed 174,376 volunteer hours.
