Want to help young learners sharpen their reading skills? Here's a great opportunity to help students become better readers by serving as a volunteer tutor.
The United Way California Capital Region, the Sacramento Chinese Community Service Center, and the AARP Foundation have teamed up to encourage people—ages 50 and older—to volunteer to help students with their reading proficiency through consistent, twice-weekly tutoring sessions during the school year. Volunteers will become part of the AARP Foundation Experience Corps program and receive training prior to volunteering. This opportunity will afford volunteers the added benefit of meeting and networking with their peers.
Opportunities are available in the following school districts:
- Center Joint Unified
- Elk Grove Unified
- Sacramento City Unified
- Washington Unified
The first step in becoming an Experience Corps volunteer tutor is to sign up for an information session. Sessions highlight the program, why it works, what to expect as a volunteer tutor, where volunteers are needed, and the overall needs in the local community.
Call (916) 856-3972 for more details or to find out about the information session schedule.
