AARP Foundation Experience Corps Greater Cleveland

For the 2020-2021 school year, all tutoring, training and support will be virtual.  Volunteers can serve as tutors, substitute tutors or safety monitors (be a 2nd adult in the virtual tutoring room).  Tutors and safety monitors are asked to make a twice a week commitment.  You will need to have access to high speed internet connected computer or laptop, and experience using Zoom, or have the willingness to learn. 

AARP Foundation Experience Corps Greater Cleveland is hosted by Greater Cleveland Volunteers.
