Colorado Reading Corps is a nationally replicated model that utilizes AmeriCorps Members, trained in early intervention literacy strategies, to provide one-on-one tutoring to kindergarten
through third grade students who are not reading at grade level.
United Way of Larimer County launched Colorado Reading Corps in Thompson School District in August 2014. Upon completion of the first year of the program in Larimer County, results indicated
that 422 students were served, 93.1% of them showing academic progress. You can learn more about the impact of Colorado Reading Corps here.
Colorado Reading Corps is funded through a state grant from Serve Colorado, as well as matching funds from United Way’s Smart Start for Kids Initiative. The tutoring program has had
great success in school districts throughout Colorado, including Thompson School District, Jeffco Public Schools, Adams 12 Five Start Schools, Aurora Public Schools and Denver Public Schools.
