AARP Foundation Experience Corps
Three-fourths of Arizona third graders do not read proficiently. An estimated 65% of America’s fourth graders read below grade level. Achieve Pinal is partnering with the city of Casa Grande Public Library and the Casa Grande Elementary School District to recruit community-based volunteers ages 50 and over. By volunteering as a reading tutor, volunteers can help change a child’s future. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
