Fall 2021 New Mentor Applications - NOW OPEN!

posted on April 27, 2021

Maryland Mentor Corps is now recruiting Fall 2021 Mentors for the Maryland Reading Program, Maryland Math Program, and Maryland Family Literacy Program! 

**NOTE**  Currently, Maryland Mentor Corps has not yet determined if our programs will operate in-person, virtually, or in a hybrid model for Fall 2021. We must wait for UMD and Prince George's County Public Schools to make certain decisions that will dictate our program implementation.

The mission of the Maryland Mentor Corps (formerly known as America Reads*America Counts*Partners in Print), a partnership between the University of Maryland and Prince George's County Public Schools, is to provide high quality mentoring in local schools that enriches learning opportunities for both college and elementary school students. 

The Maryland Mentor Corps aims to: 

  • Provide a strong mentoring and tutoring experience for elementary school children in the Prince George’s County Public Schools, ultimately helping more children be successful in reading and math and reducing the impact of the educational opportunity gap

  • Help University of Maryland students understand the complexities of public K through 12 education and empower them to be education advocates

  • Provide University of Maryland students with the opportunity for work experience, especially in the area of teaching, and provide professional development in teaching and leadership

  • Enhance the relationship between the University of Maryland and its home community, Prince George’s County 

The Maryland Mentor Corps (MMC) is home to three programs:

► Maryland Reading Program (formerly America Reads): Mentors work one-on-one with 1st and 2nd grade students who are struggling with reading.

Shifts Available: Monday through Thursday; 7:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m, every week of the semester.

► Maryland Math Program (formerly America Counts): Mentors work 1:1 or in small groups with 4th graders who are struggling with math.

Shifts Available: Monday through Thursday; 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m., every week of the semester.

►Maryland Family Literacy Program: Mentors develop programming to support local families with young children. Speakers of languages including Spanish, French, Amharic, or languages of Western Africa are highly desired!

Shifts Available: Monday through Thursday; 5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m., and potential Saturday shifts, every week of the semester.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis through September 5, 2021.
