Experience Corps tutor on NPR

James Williams, an AARP Experience Corps literacy tutor and lunch-time mentor, was a guest recently on NPR’s show, Sound of Ideas on Cleveland’s WCPN 90.3 FM. Williams echoed the show’s topic, Toward Healthier Seniors, explaining his volunteer experiences which provides a healthier outlook on life. He relayed positive comments about his weekly routine with not only serving as a literacy tutor for the past 10 years, but as a lunch-time mentor with the My Mentor My Friend program of Greater Cleveland Volunteers, for the past three years. Both programs are in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District.
