Interested in finding out more about serving as a True North Americorps member at Homecroft Elementary School?
Be a hero to PreK-3rd grade students who struggle with reading by serving as a Minnesota Reading Corps tutor at Homecroft Elementary School. Whether you want to explore a career in education, re-enter the workforce, or give back to your community, you can make a difference as a tutor. Last year, Minnesota Reading Corps provided direct services to more than 30,000 children in more than 700 schools across the state.
As a tutor, you'll see a student's progress – in their test scores, in their other school work and in their eyes as they light up with the satisfaction of knowing they can learn. No child wants to stand out because they can’t learn as quickly as other kids. We’re helping more kids catch up and soar on their own. And you can be part of it.
Tutors receive extensive training and support from onsite coaches. Tutors are paid a living allowance, given federal student loan forbearance, and are eligible for an education award of up to $5,775 at the end of their service. . Tutors 55 or older may gift the award to a child or grandchild.
Learn how you can get involved by visiting MinnesotaReadingCorps.org. You can also help by telling a friend or family member (grandparents make great tutors, too!) about openings at our school and statewide! Positions start in August for the 2016-17 school year. Send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 866-859-2825.
