    Your Experience Counts volunteers:

    • Commit to two or more hours per week (during the school day), based on availability and geographic preference.
    • Are assigned to work alongside a teacher, supporting students for the duration of the school year.
    • Provide support for 3rd-6th graders in reading, writing, math, and science.
    • Meet monthly with other YEC members to share stories and discuss best practices.

    As a YEC member, you will be trained in:

    • Policy issues related to the critical state of public education
    • Knowledge and skills for working with a diverse student population
    • Proven teaching strategies and cooperative learning techniques
