Experience Corps

United Way California Capital Region in affiliation with the AARP Foundation is proud to bring Experience Corps to our region. Experience Corps is an intergenerational volunteer-based tutoring program that is proven to help children who aren’t reading at grade level become great readers by the end of 3rd grade. We inspire and empower adults 50 and older to serve in local schools and disrupt the cycle of poverty by making a difference in the lives of Kindergarten-3rd grade students. With approximately 2 days per week, 2-3 hours per day, you can make a lasting impact in a child’s life. By helping young students become better readers, we seek to ensure a legacy of strong futures, supported schools and empowered volunteers.
