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.
NO PRIOR CLASSROOM OR TUTORING EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED.
We have a comprehensive training program that will insure your success!
Experience Corps is currently seeking volunteers in these areas:
- East Bay (Berkeley & Oakland)
- San Francisco
- Marin County
- San Mateo County
- Sacramento & Yolo Counties
- San Diego
- Orange County
