Information about the 2019 Annual Volunteer Information Report: Similar to previous years, there is only one report, and the report asks questions about the following:

  • your program structure
  • volunteer training
  • volunteer involvement
  • recruitment and support
  • the numbers of volunteers, volunteer hours, and learners served by volunteers in your program

NEW THIS YEAR: The report will ask for volunteer demographics. As Minnesota is becoming more multicultural and the majority of adult learners are people of color, the literacy council is prioritizing recruitment of volunteers of color to ensure the ABE field reflects the communities in which we serve. The information collected will be used to monitor our success at attracting and maintaining a diverse volunteer corps in order to better serve our communities.

It is important that the Minnesota Literacy Council receive accurate information about the use of volunteers in the Adult Basic Education field. We report the information and numbers you give us to the Minnesota Department of Education, the state legislature, volunteer advocacy organizations and ABE practitioners. The information you provide also makes it possible for the literacy council to continue to support literacy programs statewide through volunteer training, conferences, networking opportunities, the Adult Literacy Hotline referral service, volunteer recruitment, newsletters and more.

The report is due Wednesday, July 31, 2019.
