Do you believe all children deserve to know how to read?

Do you want to make a difference in the life of a child?

Join our AARP Experience Corps Intergenerational Mentoring Team helping young schoolchildren learn to read!

Volunteers work one on one and in small groups with young elementary school students, helping them learn how to read and instilling in them the love of learning. Our volunteers provide academic, social and emotional support for children who will benefit from a little extra help. YOU can make the difference in the life of a child!

Volunteers work 4 - 6 hours per week in the after-school program.

No experience is needed - just a desire to make a difference, and a love of children! We provide dynamic and interactive training, and full support.
