If you’re interested in the 2023-2024 Tufts Literacy Corps program, keep reading.
The Tufts Literacy Corps was established in 1998, when President Bill Clinton introduced the America Reads Challenge and authorized college students across the nation to use their Federal Work Study awards to help children learn to read. Since then, the Federal program has expanded to include mathematics, writing and science. The Tufts Literacy Corps, too, has grown into three core tutoring groups (reading, writing and mathematics) and several student run initiatives.
If you’re interested in joining the Tufts Literacy Corps for the 2023-2024 academic year, please read through our website to learn more about the programs we offer. Think about what you’re most interested in contributing to the program. Interviews for next year will begin in late August – so please return to this site then to fill out the TLC Application and set up an interview. Thanks!
