Experience life-changing growth. Become a Minnesota Reading Corps tutor.

Would you love to help children grow their reading skills, succeed in school and get extra support? If your answer is yes, you can be trained to serve as a tutor with Minnesota Reading Corps at Lake Harriet Lower. Whether you want to explore an educational career, reenter the workforce, or give back to your community, you can succeed as a tutor.

Last year, Minnesota Reading Corps provided direct services to over 30,000 children in more than 700 schools across the state. As a tutor, you'll see a student's progress – in their test scores, in their other school work and in their eyes as they light up with the satisfaction of knowing they can do it. No child wants to stand out because they can’t learn as quickly as other kids. We’re helping more

kids catch up and soar on their own. And you can be part of it. 

In addition to our extensive paid training, tutors receive on-site support from specially trained school mentors. Tutors are paid a living allowance, and are eligible for an education award of up to $5,645 and federal student loan forbearance. Tutors 55 or older may gift the award to a child or grandchild.

You can help by telling a friend or family member about our school’s open positions and openings statewide! Applicants can learn more and apply at www.MinnesotaReadingCorps.org. Strong preference is given to tutors who can begin in August. Send questions to recruitment@servemnaction.org or call 866-859-2825.
