Experience Corps Bay Area’s volunteer literacy program is expanding into San Mateo County schools and needs 50 adult volunteers to help elementary school students boost their reading scores.
The ECBA program will provide literacy volunteers in five schools, including Selby Lane Elementary in Atherton (pictured).
ECBA is a program of the human services agency, Aspiranet, in which adult volunteers engage with students for one-on-one and small group literacy tutoring. Earlier this year, the AARP Foundation, a grantee of the Social Innovation Fund (SIF), awarded a four-year matching grant to Aspiranet and ECBA to help expand their program into San Mateo County.
ECBA is currently recruiting volunteers for this school year. Prior classroom experience is not required. Prospective volunteers may contact ECBA’s Volunteer Recruitment Coordinator Eric Nelson at 415-759-4222 ext. 7315, or ECBAIntakeCoordinator@aspiranet.org.
