AARP Foundation Experience Corp is looking for our Seniors who are 50 years and older ( preferably retired)  that can volunteer time to tutor small groups of children.

We have 19  schools on the South and West side of Chicago in the Englewood and North Lawndale communities that’s in need of volunteers for the Basic Literacy Skills program.

The Vision Statement of AARP Foundation Experience Corp is: A just society where all children have an equal  opportunity to succeed and  were older adults are valued.

Mission Statement: Experience Corps engages highly trained adults 50+ who help children attain grade level reading and literacy proficiency so that children succeed and older adults thrive.

So a little about AARP Experience Corps: Experience Corps is a proven intergenerational early literacy tutoring program with a focus on kindergarten through third grade. The program places trained volunteers 50 and older in public school classrooms to work with struggling students in small groups (generally 2-3 students) per group.  Volunteer literacy tutors receive intensive pre-service and in-service training.  All the materials you will need are provided by the classroom teacher and AARP Experience Corps. The program operates during the school day and in the classroom with the teacher present.
