Whether you want to explore a career in education, re-enter the workforce, or give back to your community, you can be a child’s hero as a tutor. Last year, Minnesota Reading Corps provided direct services to more than 30,000 children in more than 700 sites across the state.

With extensive training, support from onsite coaches, and evidence-based strategies, Reading Corps tutors are well-equipped to change lives. Tutors may earn a living allowance, education award, and federal student loan forbearance, and will have the chance to make a real difference in the life of a child.
