PARTNER TO ACCELERATE K-5 LITERACY LEARNING RECOVERY GROUNDED IN THE SCIENCE OF READING
Education challenges Have Dramatically impacted students across our state
Recent challenges facing public education have merely exacerbated what has long existed in North Carolina and across the country.
For example, prior to the pandemic, data showed that only 36% of our state’s fourth-graders could read at or above grade level.
State results for the past two years show young readers in North Carolina falling even further behind due to lost instructional time and added stressors.
IMAGINE IF EVERY K-5 STUDENT HAD ACCESS TO A High-impact TUTOR
That’s a future we can create together.
North Carolina Education Corps partners with public school units (PSUs) to recruit, train, and coach community members to support students as “corps members.”
In 2023-2024, corps members will assist PSUs by delivering high-impact tutoring in phonics and phonological awareness to accelerate early literacy learning recovery.
Engaging North Carolinians to empower students and accelerate learning recovery
What We Believe: North Carolina is stronger when all students have the full support they need to thrive.
How We Started: North Carolina Education Corps was launched in September 2020 by the North Carolina State Board of Education and the Governor’s Office.
What We Do: Now as an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we partner with PSUs to extend the reach of teachers and advance student achievement.
We do this by recruiting, training, and coaching corps members who work for schools as high-impact K-5 literacy and math tutors to accelerate student learning.
We have Lofty-Yet-Achievable goals for 2023-2024:
2-5+ corps members per elementary school
Dozens of districts
Hundreds of corps members
During 2022-23, we partnered with 29 PSU’s to train, deploy, and coach 549 corps members across North Carolina.
Hear perspectives from participating district leaders. We're grateful for this committed community of educators across the state of North Carolina.
What Our Partners Say

– Eric Davis
In this time of so many uncertainties, this initiative has given teachers hope that we can find their students and get them back on track.
– Polly Long, Mt. Airy City Schools
Having NC Ed Corps tutors be an advocate and physically be there to ensure [my student] is getting his missing work/current work completed, is a Godsend. I would hope and truly believe that those students who may have been difficult to reach are now being reached because of NC Ed Corps!
