I retired 2 years ago from a computer technichan job and wanted to do something that would help my community. I read about Experience Corps and thought it would be perfect for me. I started working with a Transitional to Kindergarden class and love it. I feel I am making a real differnce in these young children's lives. Some come prepared for entering school but many have no idea how to work and play with other children, how to articulate their feelings even something so simple as finishing a puzzle can be complicated ! I also feel like I am assisting their teacher, giving her more time to interact with more students and also being an adult to bounce ideas off. I love this program - so happy I am involved in it!
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
More publicity so more retired people would know about it.
Would you volunteer for this group again?
For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?
Did the organization use your time wisely?
Would you recommend this group to a friend?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
