Literacy Tutoring Program Continues in the Euclid City School District

Joyce Waschura reviews sight words with student. 

Greater Cleveland Volunteers will continue operating the AARP Foundation Experience Corps literacy tutoring program in the Euclid City School District in the 2018-2019 school year.

 AARP Foundation Experience Corps is a proven national 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 is looking for literacy tutors for students in grades K-3 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.
