Experience Corps® (EC) is a program that brings older adults into public elementary schools to improve academic achievement of students, through one-to-one tutoring, small group academic help, and assisting teachers. It has been in existence for over 13 years and currently operates in 20 cities across the country. The evaluation was designed to provide information about the EC members, their experiences in the program, and outcomes associated with participation.
