English Empowerment and Action

The Lyndale Neighborhood Association (LNA) is a community-driven organization that brings people together to work on common issues and opportunities to ensure all community members have the opportunity to live, work, and play in a safe, vibrant, and sustainable community. The Minnesota Literacy Council (MLC) is a nonprofit, statewide organization that provides literacy services to adults, children, volunteers, and community programs around Minnesota. This project will develop an English as a Second Language (ESL) program for non-English speaking community members in Lyndale while creating a path for students to get involved in shaping the direction of their neighborhood. The project will improve students quality of life, train them in community leadership skills, and lead to involvement with the neighborhood group.
