Volunteering

I just signed up for someone to contact me with AARP experience corps. I would be tutoring young children. I am just going to wait and get more information. Is anyone else doing this? Have any advice? Thanks.

My wife volunteers at our youngest daughter's school in her kindergarten class room. Mary does a lot of little things which allows Emma to have more time teaching her students.

If you want to volunteer I would suggest doing it locally

 The first place I would suggest is at VA location or a local retirement center.

Reading to young kids at a local library or daycare center.

Check with an area Chamber of Commerce.or local AARP office

Hi Nicole and all.  I decided not to do the virtual volunteer tutoring as it was too demanding.  I need to have something, though, so it was so great when my 31 year-old piano student came for a lesson last evening.  He is so pleasant and enjoyable to teach.  I can tell he has been practicing quite a bit even though we haven't met for some weeks.  I had covid, he lost his father, and then the holidays.  I have have only the one student, but in the past I had about 30 students a week at a local music store and I worked there for 8 years.  I don't want that many now, of course, but one or two more could be nice.  Thanks for always thinking of me Nicole.

I don't know. I told them I don't want to drive too far. It may be online, though.

👉(11/30/22) Please UPDATE us on what happens IF you feel up to it. Awesome you are volunteering @CarolynS674392 👌 I tried it last year at the Roanoke Rescue Mission (Roanoke, Virginia) to "give back" for the time I stayed there in 2018. Awful experience and now understand why they are always begging for volunteers. Hmmm, volunteer means we are NOT your employee. Sorry, retired, served my "sentence" of being someone's employee, so NOT doing that now. Anyway, I am sure it will work out for you and keep you busy. I will try again when I move back to Melbourne, Florida maybe next year 2023. Nicole 🙂 👈
