MFS Encore Fellow Louis Weisberg is being highlighted for his work on MFS Experience Corps and Gen2Gen in the February edition of the Intel Retiree Organization News Flash newsletter.

Lou speaks highly of the program’s succeses:

“After one year, many students who work with mentors achieve as much as a 60% improvement in critical literacy skills compared to their peers,” Louis said. “Experience Corps is a simple but effective anti-poverty strategy.”

The article notes:

People with good literacy skills are more likely to have higher self-esteem, better health, better jobs and higher wages.
