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 improve their skills and become better readers. Rigorous third party evaluation has consistently shown that students who have Reading Corps make greater gains. 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.
