AARP Foundation Experience Corps is Seeking Volunteers
AARP Foundation Experience Corps is recruiting volunteers age 50 or over to serve as reading tutors for struggling readers in grades K-3 at local elementary schools during after school.
Did you know that nearly 50% of San Diego County’s 3rd graders are not meeting state literacy standards? Children who don’t read proficiently by the end of third grade are four times more likely to leave school without a diploma compared to proficient readers. You have the opportunity to help change this statistic.
By volunteering as an AARP Foundation Experience Corps literacy mentor, you will help change the course of students’ lives. Experience Corps is a proven reading program made up of tutor’s ages 50+ who work with struggling readers in Kindergarten through 3rd grade to help them with their literacy skills. Experience Corps is currently recruiting volunteers to tutor during the after school expanded learning programs in Normal Heights, City Heights, Lemon Grove and the College area.
- No previous tutoring experience necessary
- Comprehensive training and ongoing support will be provided
- A commitment of twice a week for a full school year is preferred
- As a reading tutor, you have the opportunity to be part of the solution.
- Just a few hours in a neighborhood school can change a child’s life — and yours!
Don’t think you can make the commitment? Learn how you can still be involved as a substitute tutor!
