Senior citizens have a unique opportunity to guide the next generation of children in Evansville. Through the AARP Foundation Experience Corps Evansville, participants give back to our community and impart valuable experience on young minds. AARP Foundation Experience Corps Evansville accepts volunteers interested in helping children with reading, math, and science.
This program places individuals over age 50 in local schools tutoring and mentoring children in kindergarten through the third grade. Volunteers assist 2 -3 days per week for up to three hours a day. Our goals are to improve children's literacy, strengthen our community, help instill inspiration in our schools, and support hard working teachers.
We are looking for people who are at least 50 years old, have a high school diploma or GED, and agree to a criminal background check. Volunteers must pass a basic reading and writing screening and commit to at least 25 hours of pre-service training.
AARP Foundation Experience Corps volunteers also benefit from improved physical, mental, and social well-being and an expanded circle in the community. Participating in this program hosted by Carver Community Organization is sure to be a rewarding experience, and it’s just another way we strive to enlighten generations.
