Iwas glad to give something back.This is National Volunteer week and AARPMD stops to honor all of the volunteerswho work with us daily.

AARP EXPERIENCE CORPS BALTIMORE GETSBACKING FROM ANNIE E. CASEYFOUNDATION
 AARP Experience Corps making a difference inBaltimore!
The Baltimore branch of AARP Experience Corps was recentlyawarded a $175,000 grant from the Annie E. Casey Foundationto expand their work in Baltimore Public Schools. The grant
will be invested in Experience Corps’ ongoing in
-class tutoringto improve reading literacy for students in grades K-3, with anadded focus on improving attendance and minimizing chronicabsenteeism.
“We already have data on attendance and chronic absenteeismin the classroom,” says Bill Romani, branch director for AARP
Experie
nce Corps. “This funding allows us to engage parents
more directly to encourage better attendance among our 
students.”
 
This is the second Experience Corps’ grant awarded by theCasey Foundation and there is significant data to suggest it’s a
wise investment. The number of chronically absent students in
Experience Corps’ schools was 3% lower than in other similar 
Baltimore area schools in from 2010 through 2013. And since
2006 a higher number of 3rd graders in Experience Corps’
Baltimore classrooms have s
cored at “proficient” or “advanced”
levels on state exams. More than 6,300 Baltimore childrencurrently benefit from the program.For more information on the AARP Experience Corps programor opportunities to become a volunteer visitwww.aarp.org/experiencecorps or contact Bill Romani,Director, at wromani@aarp.org or 443-278-9400.
