About Minnesota Reading Corps

Minnesota Reading Corps launched in 2003, serving preschool children in four Head Start agencies. The early results showed the program model was effective. The program quickly expanded to serve children age 3–grade 3 in many more locations throughout Minnesota.

Minnesota Reading Corps has grown each year to become one of the largest national AmeriCorps program in the country. Since 2003, Minnesota Reading Corps has provided early intervention services to over 125,000 age 3 – grade 3 students. Annually, Minnesota Reading Corps reaches approximately 30,000 students.

Program Overview

Nearly one in three 3rd graders in Minnesota is failing to reach basic levels of literacy. You can help change that. As a Minnesota Reading Corps literacy tutor, you can help change this statistic and the lives of struggling readers. As the nation’s largest state AmeriCorps program, we are recognized because our tutors are getting results with the students they serve and are helping to ensure that all children are successful readers by the end of third grade.

 

Tutors commit to a year of AmeriCorps service, receive rigorous training and ongoing support throughout the year from literacy coaches, and use assessments to ensure their efforts produce the desired results – helping children achieve grade-level reading proficiency.
