Tens of thousands of michigan students are failing to reach basic levels of literacy and math. 

We're Here to change that.

Michigan Education Corps is an AmeriCorps program that serves students age three through grade eight, ensuring each one has a chance to succeed. We do this because the facts don’t lie—if a student is proficient in reading and math, the future looks a whole lot brighter for them.

Since 2012, AmeriCorps reading and math tutors, referred to as interventionists, have served over 23,000 Michigan children.
