Early Learning Corps corps at a GLANCE / FOR MEMBERS

Michigan Education Corps (MEC) Early Learning Corps’ (previously PreK Reading Corps) goal is for every Michigan preschooler to be Kindergarten ready, and we need your help to reach this goal.

 

As an Early Learning Corps interventionist, you’ll serve one preschool classroom to help each child become Kindergarten ready. In order to achieve this goal, you’ll assist preschool teachers in implementing a literacy and math rich learning environment. You’ll also provide scripted evidence-based literacy interventions in small groups or one-on-one. These interventions focus on rhyming, alliteration, letter sounds, letter names and picture naming (vocabulary). To ensure your success, you’ll receive ongoing training and coaching throughout the school year.

Earn your Child Development associate (CDA) Credential

As an Early Learning Corps Interventionist, you have the opportunity to complete your Child Development Associate (CDA) credential and become a more qualified candidate in the early childhood education field. In partnership with Vibrant Futures, MEC offers this opportunity to Early Learning Corps Interventionists who begin their service term in August/September. Watch this video to hear more from an Early Learnig Corps Alumni, Brittney Rose.

Michigan Education Corps Early Learning Corps is an AmeriCorps program. Early Learning Corps interventionists (members) commit to serve up to 1,200 hours following the school calendar. Most Early Learning Corps Interventionists serve full time – Monday-Friday during the school day depending on the school schedule.
