BLOSSOM is an eLearning platform delivering capacity building education to nonprofit leaders – executive, staff, and volunteers – in a secure, private workspace online. Learners begin with an assessment which results in a curriculum playlist from which they choose courses that meet their needs. Learning is at their own pace and in their own time- greatly reducing the stress and anxiety of being away from their desks and offices. All learners are matched with a personal coach who facilitates the application of the learned materials on current challenges experienced by the learner. The learner has a locker to retain materials and products developed through their course completion, accessible for future use.

Food insecurity has increasingly become an issue on college and university campuses across the country, with two out of three community college students experiencing food insecurity. Food insecurity and hunger impacts a student’s energy level and motivation, negatively impacting their academic success. Students who are hungry often have to choose between paying for textbooks, childcare, transportation, or groceries. To address this challenge, colleges throughout the country have opened food pantries for their students. The Magic Food Bus is the MxCC low-cost approach to address student food insecurity in light of reduced state support and limited space on campus. The ability to provide access to free non-perishable food items and organic fresh vegetables will help support student success and retention, which are key components of the MxCC Strategic Plan.LEARN MORE
