NORTH CAROLINA SCHOOLS FACE A LITERACY CRISIS
A drop in K-5 literacy scores is having a drastic impact across our state. In recent years, some students have lost learning time and are falling behind. Families are juggling work, school, and child care. Teachers are struggling to keep students engaged. All of this makes it harder for students to learn and thrive.
North Carolina Education Corps was a response to the impact COVID-19 had on schools, and its work continues to help students make up ground and get back on track.
We bring together community members to support students and accelerate learning. You can help.
IMAGINE IF EVERY K-5 STUDENT HAD ACCESS TO A TUTOR
That’s a future we're creating together.
Launched in September 2020 by the North Carolina State Board of Education and Office of the Governor, NC Education Corps connects caring adults to students to eliminate barriers to opportunity and unlock student potential. Now as an independent 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, NCEC partners with schools to recruit, train, and coach corps members who work for schools as high-impact tutors.
