OVER 60,000 MICHIGAN third grade STUDENTS ARE FAILING TO REACH BASIC LEVELS OF LITERACY. WE’RE HERE TO CHANGE THAT.

Michigan Education Corps works with students age three through grade three, ensuring each one has a chance to succeed. We do this because the facts don’t lie—if a student is proficient by the time they reach the third grade, the future looks a whole lot brighter for them.
