Do you have 4 hours a week to change a child's life? Do you want to become a reading tutor volunteer? If you're 50 and over, looking for a way to give back to the community, and enjoy working with children, Experience Corps is the program for you.

AARP Foundation Experience Corps is a volunteer-based tutoring program that connects older adults to their communities by engaging them in the intergenerational work of helping young students become better readers. The program helps older adult volunteers maintain a sense of purpose by putting their wisdom to work.



Why Should You Volunteer?

Children who can't read at grade level by fourth grade are four times more likely not to graduate from high school. As an Experience Corps volunteer tutor, you'll implement a structured tutoring method that helps students become fluent readers by the end of third grade. Experience Corps volunteers receive extensive training, which prepares them to provide individual tutoring and small group work. What's more, you'll be engaged in meaningful work, using your knowledge and experience to guide the next generation of readers and help turn their dreams into reality

We are looking for people who are:

Age 50 and older

Passionate about education, children and reading

High school graduate or equivalent

Agree to and can pass a criminal background check

Can serve at least four hours a week from October 2021 to May 2022



Benefits for volunteers:

You provide the passion and we provide the training!

Free background check and TB test

Opportunity to increase digital literacy

School site support

Enhanced social network

School holidays off!
