About Minnesota Math Corps

State exam results show 40 percent of Minnesota eighth graders do not demonstrate grade-level proficiency in math. Minnesota Math Corps provides a solution to help students become successful 21st century learners and to narrow achievement gaps. The program places trained AmeriCorps tutors in Minnesota schools to deliver research-based math strategies that help students in grades four through eight build the skills needed to succeed in math

Minnesota Math Corps started in 2007 in the St. Cloud School District in partnership with St. Cloud State University. Math Corps has expanded into new sites each year, with more than 100 tutors currently serving in more than 100 sites statewide.

Minnesota Math Corps continues to grow its base of tutors and students every year. Since 2007, Math Corps has reached nearly 20,000 students by training and placing much-needed tutors in schools across Minnesota. The program has plans to place more than 200 tutors in over 200 elementary, middle and junior high schools during the 2017-2018 school year. 

About Minnesota Reading Corps

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 one of the largest national AmeriCorps program in the country. Since 2003, Minnesota Reading Corps has provided early intervention services to over 125,000 age 3 – grade 3 students. Annually, Minnesota Reading Corps reaches approximately 30,000 students.

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.

Tutors commit to a year of AmeriCorps service, receive rigorous training and ongoing support throughout the year from literacy coaches, and use assessments to ensure their efforts produce the desired results - helping children achieve grade-level reading proficiency.
