MSUCorps is currently recruiting for AmeriCorps members to serve as math and reading tutors for at-risk, school-age youth in kindergarten through eighth grade to enhance the quality of life and educational outcomes for individuals in MSU's service region.

Tutors will serve in Boyd, Bourbon, Carter, Clark, Greenup, Lewis, Nicholas, Robertson and Rowan counties.  

Volunteers will receive a living stipend and an educational award. Tutors must have at least 48 hours of college credit or pass a para-educator assessment. 

“MSUCorps math or reading tutors give individuals the ability to make a direct impact with the educational success of at-risk youth while providing services that strengthen the community,” said Joe Rowe, director of MSUCorps. “Tutoring, mentoring activities and service projects are key ingredients for AmeriCorps to provide needed support for the local community and school. Members gain valuable knowledge, career skills and give back to the communities they serve. It is a win-win for the schools, community and the AmeriCorps members.”

MSUCorps has been at MSU since 1994. The program is funded by the Corporation for National and Community Service and Kentucky Commission on Community Volunteerism and Services (KCCVS), which administers Kentucky's AmeriCorps national service programs like 9/11 Day of Service, Make A Difference Day, Veteran's Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, Emergency Preparedness Month, and our annual Build-A-Bed Project.
