MCN's AmeriCorps VISTA program will strengthen, inform, and connect nonprofits working with immigrant and refugee communities and communities of color to overcome the multiple determinants of poverty. MCN’s primary objective for this program is to place AmeriCorps VISTA members in Minnesota nonprofits to provide the resources, capacity, and connections community-based organizations need to ensure the sustainability of their operations and increase their impact in the community. Join this session to learn about how MCN's VISTA program can help build your organization's capacity.
The Bite-Sized Learning events are designed by MCN’s Greater Minnesota team to keep us connected across the state. While the topics are chosen to meet the needs of Greater Minnesota, all are welcome here. Each event will have a short presentation along with plenty of time for networking and discussion on the designated topic. Bring your questions and expertise on the topic- with our cameras and microphones on, we can stay connected, learn, and support one another.
Register for the event on Zoom
This event will have AI captions via Zoom’s transcription function. If you need professional captioning, or have another accessibility accommodation, please email MCN’s program assistant with your request at least two weeks prior to the start of the event. Although we will attempt to meet all accessibility requests, late request may not be fulfilled.
