AARP Experience Corps - Philadelphia Branch
If you're 50+ and can volunteer time to tutoring and mentoring a child, we need you! AARP Experience Corps is a proven program made up of volunteers who are dedicated to helping children become great readers before finishing third grade. Working collaboratively with teachers and other volunteers, you can change the course of a child's life by sharing your wisdom and experience. Our goals are to improve children's literacy, strengthen our communities, help develop cultures of inspiration in our schools, and support our hardworking teachers. Our volunteers have already changed the lives of thousands of children in schools across America. With your help, we can do even more.
AARP Experience Corps Philadelphia is planning to participate in as many as 21 elementary schools for the 2013-2014 school year. We are looking for academic tutors who enjoy working with children and who are willing to volunteer three days per week tutoring students who are below grade level in literacy and working to become proficient readers.
