We make a positive impact on children, volunteers, and the community.
Impact on Children
Critical Literacy Skills
Literacy intervention focuses on fluency proficiency, and improving reading comprehension.
Children and volunteers build a close, trusting relationship that helps improve the children’s reading skills, and also builds essential social and emotional skills.
Impact on Volunteers
Sense of Purpose
Volunteer tutors age 50+ benefit from training and ongoing support that strengthens their natural mentoring abilities, builds their confidence, and fosters a sense of purpose that helps ensure their success as tutors – and the success of the children as readers.
Older adults who volunteer for a significant number of hours each week gain important physical health, brain health, and community engagement outcomes as a result of their participation.
Impact on the Community
Combatting the Cycle of Poverty
We are providing the essential support to ensure that children can read by the end of third grade, helping them achieve their academic goals, allowing them to become productive members of the community.
Nationally, over 2000 Experience Corps volunteers in 26 cities work in schools and after-school organizations in underserved districts that need support in helping students achieve mandated reading requirements.
Supporting Schools and After-school Programs
Teachers report their students’ who participate show better attendance, fewer disciplinary problems significant gains in reading skills, and increased confidence.
