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 are matched with individual K-3rd graders in the school setting.
Volunteers work 4 - 10 hours per week in the school either during school or in after-school programs.
This is a VERY popular program and is for volunteers age 50 and over.
Some monthly stipends are available. Please ask about our options!
We are currently accepting applications for the 2017-18 school year! CALL TODAY! Space is limited at each school, so call today to be certain you have the opportunity you want.
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.
This opportunity is perfect for people who truly love children and want to see them succeed, and who enjoy being part of a wonderful group of volunteers who share this commitment.
Volunteer benefits include being able to spend time with young children, regular training opportunities, great program staff support, being part of a mentoring team, and the knowledge that you are making a difference!
