Brighter Future for All

A Proven Approach

Children who are strong readers by the end of third grade are positioned to be strong learners for the rest of their lives. By combining the people power of AmeriCorps with leading-edge literacy research, Minnesota Reading Corps helps make sure every student in the state is ready to learn.

Focused on results.

The secret of our success: tutors who are trained to help PreK and elementary students build literacy skills in ways that really work. Solid evidence about how children learn informs our program from beginning to end.
