Support Students
Elevate Potential
Launch Futures


COVID-19 is having a drastic impact on education across our state. 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 is a response to the impact COVID-19 is having on schools, as the 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.


That’s a future we can create together.

We recruit, train, and support “corps members,” who serve as high-dosage literacy tutors grounded in the science of reading and reading instruction.
Corps members extend the reach of teachers and accelerate student learning in response to the impact COVID-19 is having on schools.  As literacy tutors, corps members assist K-5 students with building foundational reading skills.

Our call to action is simple:
step up to work as a literacy tutor. Join a community effort to support students and accelerate learning.
