Experience Corps - Your Experience Matters
Experience Corps Bay Area (ECBA) engages older adults (50+) as tutors and mentors in order to increase literacy skills of children in grades K-3. We have been effective in bolstering educational practice in Bay Area schools and our volunteers have been indispensable to our success. Through this generational exchange, children succeed, older adults thrive, and communities are made stronger.
This intergenerational exchange has been proven to not only boost students' academic performance, but also to improve the health and well-being of older adults and build stronger communities in the process. Volunteers are asked to commit for the rest of the school year for a minimum of two hours per week. The unique experience and talent of older adults is the foundation of Experience Corps, so no prior tutoring experience is necessary, and training is provided. If you are interested in this fun and rewarding volunteer opportunity, email
