AARP Foundation Experience Corps of Greater Boston is hosted by Literations. For 20+ years, Literations has worked to connect older adults with the children who need them most. Today, we remain dedicated to bringing the most impactful literacy program to the children of Greater Boston by engaging the region's fastest-growing human resource: older adults. During the 2021-2022 school year, Literations is offering its literacy program in-person and virtually to local Boston Public Schools and Boys & Girls Clubs, supporting getting children back on pace with their learning by providing much needed one-to-one reading support. To get more details on any upcoming information sessions or training, please visit our website at Literations.
