What We Do:
Experience Corps, an award winning national service program for Americans over 50, demonstrates that older adults are an untapped national resource and can be engaged to help children succeed in school. Experience Corps members serve as tutors and mentors to children in public schools and after-school programs with an emphasis on improving literacy in Pre-K through 3rd grade.
Who We Are:
Experience Corps Marin volunteers are aged 50 and over and tutor in Novato and San Rafael public school classrooms. Our volunteers work with students who need extra support in literacy in grades Pre-K through 3rd grade. Volunteers chose:their schoolgradedays of the week and times of dayhow they would like to tutor (1on1, small group or classroom assistance).We provide training and on-site support. It's always a treat when my struggling readers get to read with Mr. Jerry. They see it as a reward! And the rest of the class is usually jealous! We are lucky to have him!! Join us and make an impact that could be everlasting.
