With great training and onsite coaching, we’ll prepare you to work one-on-one, in small groups or with whole classrooms to help kids develop their skills and confidence!

    About our Organization

    Minnesota Reading Corps is an AmeriCorps program that helps more than 30,000 Minnesota children, age 3 to grade 3, become successful readers each year. Started in 2004, the program has helped more than 200,000 children to improve their skills and become better readers. Rigorous third party evaluation conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago concludes that students who have Reading Corps tutors make greater gains than those who don’t. What’s more —students with traditional risk factors make even greater gains than their peers! Building on success in Minnesota, Reading Corps is replicated nationally in 12 states and the District of Columbia.
