Minnesota Reading Corps, the country’s largest state AmeriCorps program, will train and place over 1,000 literacy tutors in schools across the state. These tutors provide research-based strategies, monitor progress and ultimately, guide struggling students toward becoming successful readers by the end of third grade. They are seeing real results and catching kids up to their peers. All while building valuable professional experience. It’s a chance to explore life in our school and create growth– both in your life and a young child’s life. All tutors serve 11 months as AmeriCorps members, beginning in August.
Elementary Literacy Tutors work one-on-one with K-3 children who need help learning to read. These AmeriCorps members are trained in research-based strategies and use prescribed literacy interventions and conduct weekly progress monitoring to ensure the student is on track to read at grade level by the end of third grade. They commit to daytime hours and are placed in elementary schools, where they build their professional experience and network.
