Become a Tutor | Experience life-changing growth
Minnesota Reading Corps tutors know growth. They see it in the kids they work with. They grow along with them.
Our goal is to help every Minnesota child become a proficient reader by the end of third grade. As the nation's largest state AmeriCorps program, we are nationally recognized as helping close the achievement gap. The challenges are very real, but if you have the energy and the attitude, we provide the training and support you need to help students grow their skills in reading.
Right now, nearly one in five Minnesota third-graders is failing to reach basic levels of literacy. That’s nearly 13,000 children each year. As a Minnesota Reading Corps tutor, you’ll work with children from age three to grade three to provide proven research-based instruction and tools and ultimately, guide struggling students toward becoming successful readers.
In return, you’ll receive:
- An education award of up to $5,550
- A living stipend
- Professional development opportunities
- Additional benefits, if eligible
- The pride of knowing you have given young readers the chance to succeed
One year. This year. Serve to grow.

“There may not be a short answer to why the achievement gap happens. But there is a short answer to whether anything can be done to eliminate it. Yes. I see very real progress being made every day simply by serving with the Minnesota Reading Corps.”Liz Roemer, Reading Corps, St. Paul Hear More Stories
