How do I apply?
Experience life-changing growth. Literacy tutors are urgently needed. Help kids in local Minnesota communities learn the skills they need to succeed by serving 11 months as a literacy tutor. We're the nation's largest AmeriCorps program, and our goal is to help all Minnesota children become successful readers by the end of third grade.
Before you apply...
Please review this Guide to Applying before you decide to apply. This includes important information about what it means to commit to a year of service. Be sure to also view all available positions. If you do not see a position available in your location, please continue submitting your application. Some positions that were previously full may open up at the last minute. However, if you are flexible with location, please apply for areas that are listed here.
A little about our selection process…
We fill positions on a rolling basis, which means early applicants will have more choice in service locations and will be notified earlier regarding whether they are accepted. Our sites--elementary schools and preschools--are also involved in making selection decisions. You may review a timeline of our application and selection process. With the high volume of applicants, we unfortunately do not accept paper applications.
