The Literacy Leader will develop and continue research in the English for Work (EFW) department at International Institute of Minnesota (IIM). English classes have existed at the Institute for decades; IIM was the first location to offer English classes in Minnesota. Since its inception, IIM has prided itself on its services geared towards women.

While IIM does not exclusively serve women, and men are welcome in our classes, 64% of IIM students are female. Current EFW students range in English literacy level from zero English literacy to a 7th grade reading level. EFW classes focus instruction on both workplace and academic English to assist students in finding and improving their current employment statuses.

However, this goal means we are consistently working to move our students beyond our classrooms and into the workforce. Even once students are employed, they continue to need our English classes. Unfortunately, after students obtain employment, they often are unable to continue with our classes and lose touch with our organization.

The goal of the Literacy Leader's project is to connect with students to expand our current programming and best serve all students in our community, including designing curriculum focused on specific supplemental classes to better serve our employed students. This position requires an applicant to have a keen interest and skill in education and curriculum design and an aptitude for interacting with community members.
