What is the Washington Reading Corps? 

 In 1998, our Washington Reading Corps program was created through a collaboration between the Governor’s office, the Washington State Commission for National and Community Service, the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, and the Washington Service Corps. This program solely focuses on improving literacy in children and students, placing AmeriCorps members in schools and early learning centers who provide tutoring to struggling readers.
