Review for Experience Corps Bay Area, San Francisco, CA, USA
Experience Corps in San Francisco is one of the best run volunteer organizations for what it has identified as an at-risk group requiring the sharing of knowledge through a gentle and firm approach: in helping young pupils up to grade 3 to exercise reading skills that would allow them to functional well and competitively in an educational environment. The corps takes a professional approach to training its volunteers, and its staff is highly supportive and knowledgeable. I have been with the corps for a relatively short time (less than a year) and have found that it has an excellent relationship with the public schools that it serves. I've found the work very gratifying - not all problems are solvable in the short term, but being in a position to provide a solution does have its benefits from time to time - a passage well-read, a compliment for a job well done, a smile on a child's face.
