Help Give Students the Gift of Reading

Chances are, you’ve acquired good communication skills over the years. Why not share them with children?

AARP DC is recruiting volunteers for AARP Foundation Experience Corps, a program that places adults 50 and older in elementary school classes and after-school programs to tutor kids in reading and literacy. Volunteers find it gratifying to help the students—most of whom improve academically—and to stay physically and mentally active.

Volunteers must commit to giving at least five hours a week, on two to three days each week, throughout the school year. Training is provided.

Information sessions will be held Tuesdays, May 22 and June 21, from 2 to 3 p.m., and Thursday, June 12, 10:30-11:30 a.m., at the AARP national office. For details, call Denise Fraction at 202-434-6349 or email her at
