Michigan Education Corps is an AmeriCorps program that has provided reading or math Intervention (often referred to as tutoring) to over 23,000 Michigan children since 2012.
supporting our interventionists
Interventionists begin their AmeriCorps service with training from education experts who give them the knowledge and tools they need to be effective and confident. Additional training is provided throughout the school year. Through a multi-layer support system, interventionists receive ongoing coaching and feedback to ensure that our interventions are delivered in the same way across the state.
THE PATH TO PROFICIENCY
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.
OUR MEMBERS MAKE IT POSSIBLE
To get students back on track, we partner with AmeriCorps members—individuals on the front lines of our service. 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.”
