MEC Math CORPS AT A GLANCE / FOR MEMBERS
Michigan Education Corps’ goal is to help every Michigan child become algebra ready by ninth grade—a goal that we can only reach with your help. As an MEC Math Corps Interventionist, you’ll work with children in fourth to eighth grade, and ultimately help struggling students reach their potential.
Michigan Education Corps (MEC) Math Corps is an AmeriCorps program. MEC Math Corps members (Interventionists) commit to serving up to 1,200 hours following the school calendar. MEC provides each member the training and support needed to successfully help students become algebra ready by ninth grade. In order to achieve this goal, MEC Math Corps interventionists provide scripted, evidence-based interventions outside of the student’s teacher-led core reading or math instruction time. These interventions are designed to help students master foundational skills in working with numbers and their operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) and practice applying these skills to solve problems.
