About

AARP Experience Corps is an intergenerational volunteer-based reading tutoring program that is proven to help children who aren’t reading at grade level become great readers by the end of third grade. We inspire and empower volunteers to serve in their community.

We provide all tools and training.

**The tutoring sessions are during school hours -- we will work with your schedule to fit you in to the block that is right for you and the students!**

We are looking for 50+ individuals with a passion for reading.

Why would you want to be a Tutor?

1 Tutoring works. One-on-one tutoring, in concert with the teacher’s curriculum, over time makes a measurable difference for students. 2 You get more than you give.

Volunteer tutoring is rewarding. You have the chance to make a real difference in the life of a child and ultimately, the greater community. Volunteer tutoring is easy and fun, and you get to experience your student’s positive responses and growth.

3 You’re the expert.

Volunteers get to share what they know, not only about the subject matter, but how success in school has made a difference in their lives.

4 It’s flexible and predictable.

While tutoring requires an ongoing commitment, we can work with you to find an opportunity that works with your schedule. In addition, more and more employers are finding ways for employees to commit to tutoring opportunities during the work day.

5 All eyes are on you.

Every child loves attention, and tutoring allows you to provide it. The attention can bolster the student’s sense of self-worth and self-confidence. And, students who form good relationships with tutors may feel more positively about relationships with teachers and parents.


Come help us change our community -- one student at a time.
