Reading Corps Works: Getting Children on Track for 3rd Grade Reading

Reading Corps is a breakthrough AmeriCorps program that is changing academic outcomes for thousands of students. With more than 1,700 tutors serving in 12 states and Washington D.C., Reading Corps is helping more than 35,000 students each year become successful readers. It combines the power of national service with literacy science to deliver proven approaches that help struggling learners transform into confident students – something that translates into all areas of their lives.

2017-18 marks year three of the Reading Corps program in Wisconsin, with 18 AmeriCorps members serving as literacy tutors in twelve schools in Milwaukee. In the 2018-19 school year, we are fortunate to expand to additional schools in Milwaukee and Racine!

Wisconsin Reading Corps is a replication of the successful Minnesota Reading Corps. Minnesota Reading Corps began in 2003.
