AARP Experience Corps
Experience Corps is an established partnership between the Tempe Elementary School district and the City of Tempe that pairs highly trained senior volunteers with children in grades 1 – 3 who are at risk of not reaching critical reading goals. Volunteers meet with children in one-on-one tutoring sessions for an entire school year. Both the seniors and the students benefit by building relationships and working to achieve important reading goals.
