ORGANIZATION: AARP Foundation Experience Corps

All you need is a caring heart and a desire to empower a child to learn! If you’re 50 or older, and you want to make a real and lasting impact on the life of a child you could be the volunteer we're looking for!

Tutors receive all the training, materials, and regular coaching required to help an early elementary school student gain the confidence and academic skills needed to be successful in elementary school, middle school, and beyond. No prior experience is necessary, and we make it easy.

Our tutors are matched with a student for a school year and meet with them twice a week. This gives them a chance to build a strong, supportive relationship and serve as a role model for students as they help them build literacy skills.

If you can make a real commitment to a student you can make a real difference in their life!

Experience Corps operates in-person tutoring through community-based program partners in 12 states and the District of Columbia (AZ, CA, CT, DC, GA, IN, MA, MD, MI, MN, NY, OH, OR) and virtual tutoring nationwide. Learn more at tutor.aarpfoundation.org.
