Adults 50+ Needed to Tutor Elementary School Students

Adults 50+ Needed to Tutor Elementary School Students

At the start of each school year, more than 500 Tempe children wait to be paired with an adult volunteer from the City of Tempe’s Experience Corps to help them become more skilled and confident readers.

Reading is a crucial skill for young students from kindergarten through third grade. In Arizona, it is also a necessary skill to move onto the fourth grade.

Adults age 50 and older who would like to tutor a young student, and can commit to a full school year, can learn more about the program by attending an Experience Corps information session.

Sessions are held from 9:30 – 10:30 a.m. in Program Room B at the Tempe Public Library, 3500 S. Rural Rd. Tempe 85282.

Session dates are as follows:

Wednesday, June 7
Monday, June 19

Experience Corps volunteers work in 10 Tempe Elementary School District schools and the Boys & Girls Club’s Ladmo Branch, providing one-on-one early literacy tutoring to young students.

Volunteers do not need any special skills – just a willingness to share their experience, time and patience.

Volunteers receive comprehensive training, support services and orientation prior to being paired with a child.

Tempe Experience Corps is a program under the city of Tempe Human Services Department. For more on the program please, visit  or contact Rebecca Bond at (480) 858-2464 or
