1 person is interested
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
