First Book

First Book is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to tackling the issue of illiteracy by providing new books to children in need.  The UST MBA First Book Advisory Board enacts this mission at a local level through our partnerships with education programs in the Minneapolis community.


The First Book Advisory Board engages in fundraising initiatives throughout the year to fund book distributions.   We welcome all UST MBA students looking for a way to give back to the local community.  You can learn more about us at our First Book website.
