Experience Corps literacy program
Become a volunteer literacy tutor and make a lasting impact on a child's life


AARP Foundation Experience Corps If kids aren’t reading at grade level by 4th grade, they will have a hard time keeping up across multiple subjects. United Way helps kids stay on track in school and achieve key milestones. Today, four out of five low-income students and two-thirds of U.S. fourth graders have missed this important milestone. Together we can change this.

Led locally by United Way, AARP Experience Corps members volunteer as tutors at local schools to help Kindergarten through third grade students become confident successful readers.

​Last year, our local United Way volunteers tutored 415 students at 17 schools. After only one year of tutoring, 62% of students who started below grade level improved their reading and literacy performance.

 AARP  Experience Corps volunteer at local schools approximately 2 days per week, 2-3 hours per day  throughout the school year.
