We are looking for people who are dedicated to our community. By joining Minnesota Reading Corps, you can be one of more than 1,000 trained literacy tutors placed in schools across the state. Tutors are parents, grandparents, recent college grads, and mid-career professionals.

In addition, you’ll receive a living stipend of about $500 or $250 bi-weekly and an education award of $5,550 or $2775. All necessary training is provided and no licensure is necessary.

As part of Minnesota’s new waiver, schools that receive a Multiple Measurement Rating that falls between the 60th and 80th percentile are deemed Celebration-eligible and were invited to apply for this recognition. These schools have demonstrated significant progress in their efforts to increase student achievement. Congrats to Kenny teachers, staff and students on their efforts - keep up the great work!
