I, Linda Mitchell, the executive director of the Metro East Literacy Project, am looking for a graphic designer to create an event flyer. The event is called Literacy Lollapalooza. It's a fast-paced game night for all ages. Participants will play word-based board games.

I have the seed of an idea for a flyer that I created on my Canva Pro account. I need two deliverables.
First, I need a flyer to recruit volunteers for our practice event. The purpose is to get feedback on the event. The practice event is on Saturday, June 24, in O'Fallon, Illinois. I would like to have this flyer completed by March 31, 2023, or no later than April 15.

Second, I need a second flyer that promotes the actual event. The Literacy Lollapalooza will be held on Saturday, Dec. 2, in O'Fallon, IL. This flyer can be created at a later date.

I need a graphic designer who can create an appealing flyer that compels people to want to learn more.
I will attach a photo of the flyer I started. I will give the designer access to my Canva Pro nonprofit account in order to complete this assignment. Once the graphic designer is selected, we can discuss the details of the flyer.

Mission Statement

Functional illiteracy keeps many families trapped in intergenerational poverty, crime, drug abuse, incarceration, and low educational achievement. Fourth graders need to read well enough to learn many school subjects. Low reading skills are often a barrier to military service; getting health and financial information; and, in general, succeeding in the global, tech-driven economy. The purpose of the Metro East Literacy Project (MELP) is to offer ways to reduce functional illiteracy in our communities. We do this by focusing on families and teaching people how to read.


MELP starts families off with a bag of 25 books for adults and children. We give out book bags at childcare centers, community events, and churches. The MELP Learn to Read program is aimed at helping people learn how to read or improve their reading skills. We offer tutoring free of charge. MELP’s efforts are encapsulated into Erudite Nation. It’s more than a t-shirt slogan. It’s a change in the narrative of our communities. It’s a family’s pledge to have 100 books in their home by 2025. And it's a brigade of Encouragement Team Volunteers who encourage families along their literacy journey. Finally, Erudite Nation is a mindset that understands that Literacy is Liberation! It Takes You Higher.
