Tempe has 72 Experience Corps volunteers working in nine local elementary schools, providing one-on-one early literacy tutoring to children in first through third grade. Volunteers do not need any special skills, just a willingness to share their experience, time and patience. Comprehensive training, excellent support services and orientation will be provided.
The City of Tempe is one of 20 U.S. cities making a significant impact in the community. More than 2,000 older adult tutors nationwide are helping 20,000 Kindergarten through third grade students improve their reading skills and succeed in school.
