Mission: All Minnesota children will become proficient readers by the end of third grade.
I have been working at Minnesota Reading Corps full-time (More than 3 years)
The training and support from MN Reading Corps is the best I have ever experienced. The program staff and coaches are available to answer any question and collaborate with you to solve any problem. The training and associated printed/digital materials are extensive and easy to navigate. This is truly one of the most caring and inclusive organizations that I have worked for.
This is a service position...any 'cons' are outweighed by the rewards of service. There is nothing better than seeing students grow and succeed.
Advice to Management
Keep striving for added benefits for tutors in greater MN!
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Minnesota Reading Corps (Minneapolis, MN) in September 2014.
First I applied online. Then I had a phone interview where they asked pretty basic questions about who you are, your values, and why you want to spend a year of your life volunteering. Most of the questions were on the online application, so I had already prepared answers for them. I think I had a second interview where I had to read a passage aloud.
