Navigation & Event Coordinator VISTA (Literacy Minnesota)

Bio:

Hi, my name is Melissa Gonzalez, I am 23 years old, and I grew up in Houston, TX. I graduated from St. Olaf College in 2018 and majored in Environmental Studies.

Project description:

The Literacy Leader will centralize and develop streamlined resources and handbooks for adult learning centers to integrate navigation wrap-around services that help learners persist and achieve their educational, career and life goals; and will organize a new, large community event to raise public awareness of literacy and engage new supporters, learners and volunteers. By raising awareness and streamlining resources, the Literacy Leader will enable more adult learners who are low-income and/or with limited English proficiency to increase their education and employment opportunities and break the cycle of poverty.
