Did you know that only 31% of 4th graders in this country are able to read at a proficient level?

Research shows that children who don't read proficiently by the end of third grade are four times more likely to leave school without a diploma. But YOU can help to change this by volunteering with AARP Experience Corps, an award-winning program that places people over the age 50 in the classroom with students in kindergarten through third grade to help them improve their reading skills.


We have a comprehensive training program that will insure your success!

Experience Corps is currently seeking volunteers in these areas:
