Help Students Read – Become A Volunteer In Washington Unified

Capture

Almost 70 percent of students in the U.S.—about 6.6 million children—are unable to read proficiently by 4th grade. You have an opportunity to help students read by becoming a volunteer tutor with United Way. Through the AARP Foundation Experience Corps literacy program run by United Way, volunteers ages 50 and older get matched with students in K-3rd grade to help them improve their reading skills. The program offers small group tutoring two days per week during the school year. Volunteers receive training prior to tutoring and have the opportunity to meet and network with fellow volunteers.

We are currently recruiting volunteers to help make a difference in the life of a child. For more information, please visit
