AND MATH CORPS
Reading is the foundation of all learning – but in California, over half of children struggle to read by 3rd grade. As a literacy tutor, you can help these students gain the skills they need to thrive. Our tutors work one-on-one with students from Kindergarten to 3rd grade. Reading Corps provides comprehensive training in strategies proven to help students build skills and become successful readers.

IThe life path for at-promise boys and young men of color is often the same. They leave high school without graduating, struggle to find employment, commit a crime and then find themselves in jail. Improve Your Tomorrow’s Academic Mentors, College Advisors, and Program Assistants are changing the narrative by dramatically improving the educational outcomes of California’s lowest-performing students by supporting them to and through college and universities.

TEACH FOR AMERICA
Teaching is an incredibly humbling and rewarding experience. Your days will be full, with a lot of responsibilities to juggle. But you’re not alone. You’ll have an incredibly supportive community at your side—your fellow corps members, school team, TFA teacher coach, alumni, and others—who know what it’s like to be in your shoes. Through teaching, you will confront educational inequity head-on, and build a wealth of leadership skills and experiences that will transfer to any endeavor you might choose in the future.
