AARP Foundation 2020–2021 School Year: A Pivot to Virtual Tutoring Learn more.
Experience Corps connects students with caring adult volunteers age 50 and older who provide an essential combination of training, life experience and commitment. The program helps children read at grade level so that they have the opportunity to succeed in school and in life.
AARP Foundation Experience Corps is an intergenerational volunteer-based tutoring program that is proven to help children who aren’t reading at grade level become great readers by the end of third grade.
We inspire and empower adults age 50 and older to serve in their community and disrupt the cycle of poverty by making a lasting difference in the lives of America’s most vulnerable children.
Findings from the Experience Corps Social-Emotional Learning Evaluation were compelling, with students seeing statistically significant improvements in social-emotional learning.
