Mission Statement

Ohio Reading Corps aims to improve reading skills among struggling students and reduce the number of children retained in third grade.


Ohio Reading Corps is seeking service-oriented people to provide literacy support to K-3 students. Members will work with students who are below-proficient readers for their grade level. We provide 3 weeks of training in September and ongoing support throughout the school year. Members are assigned to one school for the year (end of September through June). Members will provide literacy support to a group of students in small groups or in 1:1 settings. This is a great way to give back to the community, and get your foot in the door if interested in obtaining a job in a school district.

This is a service position with AmeriCorps, requiring 30 hours/week September - June following the school schedule (spring break/winter break off). Typical schedule is M-F, 9:00 am - 3:00 pm. High school diploma required. No maximum age limit. In return for service, Members receive a stipend of $640 per month, plus an Education Award of $2,922 upon completion of the term (June 30). This can be used to pay student loans or tuition. Program starts September 1.
