We need your experience! Experience Corps, an award-winning tutoring and mentoring program, is currently seeking volunteers ages 50 and older to share their life experience to support students in literacy in grades K-3. Since 1998, this multigenerational exchange has been proven to not only boost students’ academic performance, but also to improve the health and well-being of older volunteers and build stronger communities in the raising hands

Volunteers are asked to commit for the rest of the school year for a minimum of four hours per week. The unique experience and talent of older volunteers is the foundation of Experience Corps, so no prior tutoring experience is necessary, and training is provided.
