Volunteer with AARP, Generations Incorporated as a Literacy Tutor for Area Schoolchildren


Interested in a community-level volunteer opportunity that can truly make a difference in the life of a child and his or her future? We're looking for people to be paired as volunteer literacy tutors to help children attending school in Boston and Revere improve their reading and literacy skills.

At AARP Massachusetts, we work with Generations Incorporated, a highly regarded 25 year-old nonprofit organization in Greater Boston and the Massachusetts affiliate of AARP Foundation Experience Corps. Generations Incorporated matches volunteers with individual children who attend one of  17 public schools or after-school programs in Boston and Revere, who need help developing their literacy skills.

With your time and guidance as a volunteer literacy tutor, a child has the chance to improve his or her literacy skills. Several options for volunteering are available to accommodate your schedule and interests and schedule, and complete training is provided — you can contribute as few as five hours per week.
