Literacy Tutoring comes to Euclid City Schools

Greater Cleveland Volunteers is proud to announce that they will be operating the AARP Foundation Experience Corps literacy training program in the Euclid City School District this school year.   

“We are looking forward to this new partnership and the ability for AARP Experience Corps literacy tutors to use their training and skills to increase students’ reading levels.” Joy Banish, executive director Greater Cleveland Volunteers announced.

AARP Foundation Experience Corps is a proven program made up of volunteers who are dedicated to helping children become great readers before finishing third grade. The goal is to improve children’s literacy, strengthen communities and help develop cultures of inspiration in schools.

“We have found that both the students and tutors benefit from the program” Ross Jones, AARP Foundation Experience Corps program manager explains. “Students make progress from the personal academic assistance as well as the relationship that develops with their tutor. Volunteers benefit by being able to share their enjoyment of reading and their life experiences in order to make a difference in a child’s life.”

Greater Cleveland Volunteers is the host agency in Cuyahoga County and are looking for literacy tutors for students in grades K-3rd who:

  • Are at least 50+ years of age
  • Can volunteer time to tutor children who need help learning basic literacy skills
  • Possess a high school diploma or GED
  • Will agree to and pass a criminal background check
  • Can serve at least five hours a week during the school year.
