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

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

Volunteers work one on one and in small groups with young elementary school students, helping them become better readers 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.

Volunteer 4 - 10 hours a week during the school year at Alder Elementary

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. Small stipends are available.
