In 2011, NORC was awarded Phase I of a project to design and implement an Impact and Process Evaluation of the Minnesota Reading Corps (MRC) Program on behalf of the Corporation for National & Community Service (CNCS). The core activities of the MRC program are training, placing, and monitoring AmeriCorps members in school-based settings to implement reading and literacy interventions to children in both preschool (PreK) and K through 3rd grade (K-3) programs.
