Relationships matter : volunteerism in Immigrant communities /

by Moua, Mai | Minnesota Association for Volunteer Administration.

Publisher: Maplewood, MN Minnesota Association for Volunteer Administration 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: March 2010 Bibliography : p. 30-39Summary: Minnesota has experienced dramatic changes in population diversity over the last 25 years. Once primarily a state of northern European ancestry, Minnesota's diversity growth rate continues to be one of the highest in the United States. The annual immigration rate in Minnesota is triple the rate of 25 years ago. Latino and Asian populations in the state grew by over 160% between the 1990 and 2000 census reports and the African population in the Twin Cities increased by 629 percent. These statistics reveal that Minnesota's population is reflecting a more non-European population with diversity in language, thinking, and cultural practices. ; The impact of immigration can be felt on multiple levels within nonprofit organizations. Mainstream organizations in Minnesota face serious challenges in recruiting, managing, and involving volunteers from immigrant and refugee communities. While Minnesota has a significant level of volunteerism, nonprofit leaders recognize that to meet their mission and to serve a diverse constituent population, their involvement of volunteers needs to be expanded to reflect the new face of Minnesota. Yet, these leaders do not have access to the resources, the knowledge, and the information necessary to make these changes.Availability: (1)
