When Dale first came to our Open Door Learning Center, his technology skills were "at ground zero," as he puts it.
"Everything I'd do, people would say 'text me, email me,' and I couldn't. It was isolating."
That's now changed.
After eight months of classes at our Open Door Learning Center - Midway, Dale graduated with eight Northstar Digital Literacy certificates, a new job where he uses technology every day and a greater willingness to try new things.
He attributes his success to our warm and welcoming classroom environment, and to having teachers who met him at his level. When you give to the Minnesota Literacy Council, this is what you're supporting. You are saying to literacy learners like Dale: "You can do it. Keep it up!"
Will you give the gift of literacy this December?
