here’s how we make reading and math less of a challenge.

K-3 Reading Corps places AmeriCorps interventionists in elementary schools across the state. They serve 15-18 kindergarten – third graders with 1:1 evidence-based literacy interventions for 20 minutes each day.

PreK Reading Corps places one AmeriCorps interventionist in each preschool classroom full-time. Interventionists provide supplemental language and literacy rich interventions for every child. Interventionists may also work with small groups or individual children for brief early literacy interventions.

Math Corps places one or two AmeriCorps Interventionists in elementary or middle schools full-time. They serve pairs of students across grades 4-8 with supplemental math intervention 3 times a week for 30 minutes a session reaching about 24 children a week.

The Top 10 Things You Need To Know About Partnering With MEC


Students in our program receive individualized attention in their own school, five days per week, over the course of the school year. We isolate each child’s challenges and create a tutoring schedule to help them catch up to their peers.


To get students back on track, we partner with AmeriCorps members—individuals on the front lines of our work. We call them “interventionists,” but students know them as role models and trustworthy friends.

“We do so much more than teach kids to read. We become a constant in their lives and show them daily that anything is possible.”
