Did you know that nearly 50 percent of San Diego County’s 3rd graders are not meeting state literacy standards? Children who don’t read proficiently by the end of third grade are four times more likely to leave school without a diploma compared to proficient readers. By volunteering as a reading mentor, you will help change the course of a students’ life. And yours! Experience Corps is a proven reading program made up of tutors who work with struggling readers in Kindergarten through 3rd grade to help them with their literacy skills.

No previous tutoring experience necessary

Comprehensive training and ongoing support will be provided

A commitment of twice a week for a full school year is preferred

As a reading tutor, you have the opportunity to be part of the solution.

Substitute tutors needed too
