Volunteer Outreach


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.


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.


  • We placed more than 550 volunteers at a literacy program in program year 2010.
  • Literacy volunteers in Minnesota increased their service hours by 25% in program year 2010.
  • All 57 volunteer coordinators at our 2010 Volunteer Managment Conference were "satisfied" or "greatly satisfied" with the event.
