About Minnesota Reading Corps | Closing the achievement gap in Minnesota

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 the largest state AmeriCorps program in the country. The program has plans to place more than 1,000 tutors in over 700 elementary schools and preschool settings during the 2014-2015 school year.

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.
