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 a Michigan Education Corps Math Corps Interventionist, you’ll work with children in fourth to eighth grade to provide proven research-based instruction and practice, and ultimately help struggling students reach their potential.
Michigan Education Corps (MEC) Math Corps is an AmeriCorps program. MEC Math Corps members (Math Interventionists) commit to serving up to 1,200 hours following the school calendar. This commitment breaks down to up to 32.5 hours a week during the school day. 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 members provide scripted evidence-based interventions outside of the student’s teacher-led core reading or math instruction time. These interventions focuses on basic fact fluency skills, and number and operation skills.
