Did you know that students who don’t read proficiently by the end of 3rd grade are four times more likely to drop out of school? And only 11% of children who fail math in 6th grade, go on to graduate high school? Our goal is to help all Minnesota children be successful in reading by the end of 3rd grade and in algebra by the end of 8th grade. Passing these important academic milestones is critical for a better start to their futures. If you are passionate about education and children, join us and make a difference in the lives of preschool, elementary and middle school students every day. Become a Minnesota Reading Corps or a Minnesota Math Corps tutor and help struggling students get on track for academic success. We’ll provide training to get you started and ongoing coaching so you’ll be supported throughout your term of service.
