Share your love of reading with a child
Would you be willing to spend some time each week doing something fun and fulfilling - especially if you knew it could change a child’s life forever?
If your answer is “yes,” please consider being a tutor, mentor and friend for a child who needs help developing reading and language skills.
Through the OASIS Intergenerational Tutoring program, volunteers, your neighborhood schools and OASIS work together to help children build reading skills, self-esteem and positive attitudes toward learning. Training and materials are provided; no teaching experience is needed.
Since 1991 Indianapolis OASIS has matched volunteers 50 and better with students in grades K – 4 who need help developing reading and language skills. Volunteers work one-on-one with the same child during the school year. Nearly 500 OASIS volunteers work with nearly 600 at-risk children in 93 elementary schools in the following school districts in the greater Indianapolis area.
- Brownsburg Community Schools
- Greenwood Community Schools
- Hamilton Southeastern Schools
- Indianapolis Public Schools – Hi-Impact tutoring program to at-risk students in 7 elementary schools
- Lawrence Township Schools
- Pike Township Schools
- Warren Township Schools
- Washington Township Schools
- Wayne Township Schools
