Can You Imagine if Every K-5 Student Had an Early Literacy Tutor?
That’s the future we can create together. A future where every NC student has opportunities to thrive. The North Carolina Education Corps recruits, educates, and deploys motivated community members to serve as high-impact early literacy tutors, support students, and accelerate learning.
Leveraging your talents to support NC students and teachers
As a high-impact tutor with NC Education Corps, you’ll work with students one-on-one or in small groups to accomplish specific literacy goals. We’ll equip you with high-quality training, and you will help our youngest learners transition from learning to read to reading to learn. Start the process today.
What Makes a Corps Member?
North Carolina Education Corps is composed of entrepreneurs, stay-at-home parents, retirees, college students, and other individuals from all walks of life. This diverse group of people is driven by a single common mission: They are determined to make a difference.
Corps members are employed (yes, paid!) by their local school districts to serve as part-time literacy tutors — adding critical capacity in elementary classrooms across North Carolina.
Your potential to make a difference in a child’s life is not defined by a degree in elementary education or experience in the education field. Rather, it is defined by your capacity to be there.
