ORGANIZATION: METRO EAST LITERACY PROJECT

Image_202303090508

I have created lots of interviews for my Literacy Journeys with Linda YouTube channel. I would love for a social media specialist to convert the content of these interviews into YouTube Shorts and Facebook/Instagram Reels.

Hi, my name is Linda Mitchell. I am the founder and executive director of the Metro East Literacy Project. (MELP). MELP serves families in the St. Louis Metropolitan areas of Illinois and Missouri, USA. MELP is a small nonprofit that I run from my home office. I wear almost all the hats. The hat I want to take off is social media content creator. I'm doing okay, but an expert at social media can do much better.

Another ongoing need is for a social media specialist to post video clips of interviews I do with families after they receive a bag of books from MELP.

Finally, I also have my Penny Press Puzzle Lady YouTube channel. These videos can be made into YouTube Shorts and Facebook/Instagram Reels.

About METRO EAST LITERACY PROJECT

Location:

119 FAMOUS ST, O'Fallon, IL 62269, US

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.

Description

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.
