North Carolina Schools Face A Covid Crisis

Covid-19 has disrupted K-12 education across our state. Students are feeling disengaged learning from home. Many are caring for younger siblings or working to make ends meet for their families. Some students and teachers need help using technology effectively for remote education. Social and emotional challenges, racial and technological disparities, and economic instability are plaguing students’ ability to thrive.

You can make a difference addressing these challenges.

Our Communities Need Your Help

Our call to action is simple: Help us tackle the most pressing needs of our schools across the state. Work with an inspiring group of North Carolinians who also see themselves as part of the solution.

Our inaugural corps members trained and deployed to begin service in early January 2021.

Job Creation Meets Crisis Relief

NC Education Corps is a joint project of the North Carolina State Board of Education, the governor’s office, and local school districts. We match compassionate and entrepreneurial leaders with opportunities to make a meaningful impact in the lives of K-12 students across the state.

We seek to activate community-minded changemakers to span the education divide, supporting NC students who need it the most. Join us.

Our vision:
A North Carolina Where All Students Have The Support They Need To Thrive.

Work that changes lives

Corps members commit up to five months of paid service. Their roles have been designed to meet the needs of the local school and utilize the skill sets of the particular corps member.
