Mission Statement

ServeMinnesota's mission is to catalyze social impact towards meeting Minnesotans’ critical needs. We develop strategic initiatives and leverage national service collaboratively. We produce measurable results through data-driven innovation, investments in program and member development, and alignment with community priorities, especially those of underserved or marginalized communities. We merge federal AmeriCorps resources with evidence-based strategies and community expertise to address some of the biggest concerns impacting our communities—rural, suburban, and urban alike. For 20 years, we have worked independently at the intersection of public and private partnerships to research, develop, and refine scalable solutions that align with local priorities in each of the 82 counties we serve. In addition to the direct effects of our programming, our AmeriCorps members are better-prepared after their service term to pursue professional roles in their field, creating a sustainable pipeline for addressing community needs.

Impact and Programs

Accomplishments ServeMinnesota made a substantial impact in communities across our state last year. AmeriCorps members served more than 49,000 children, youth, and adults through 20 programs in education, affordable housing, employment, addiction recovery, the environment, and other complex issue areas. Minnesota Reading Corps reached more than 30,000 children Pre-K through 3rd grade to improve literacy skills. Early Learning Corps focuses on helping children become Kindergarten ready through early literacy and numeracy skills and this past year reached over 2,300 children across the state. Minnesota Recovery Corps met with nearly 1,000 people in recovery and more than 600 clients returned for multiple sessions. Climate Impact Corps placed 80 members at 60 sites to assist with home energy audits, plant trees, and support other environmental actions. Heading Home Corps provided services across Minnesota to those experiencing housing insecurity.
Current Goals In the current fiscal year ServeMinnesota strives to create opportunities for members to align AmeriCorps service experience with career development across education, environment, and community building programs with a strategic focus on advancing members who identify as BIPOC.
Community or Constituency Served ServeMinnesota works with AmeriCorps members and community partners to meet critical needs throughout Minnesota. We focus on solving tough problems in educational achievement, economic opportunity, and environmental protection. We work with more than 1,000 sites across the state that are hosting an AmeriCorps member this year. These sites include schools, local nonprofits, and community organizations.
