OASIS iPad Event

Sylvia Cazares learns how to navigate her iPad at the free iPad event held at San Antonio OASIS on Wednesday October 23rd. Thanks to the employees of AT&T, OASIS members had 30 minute one-on-one coaching sessions with the AT&T experts to ask their many iPad questions. Feedback was excellent as members described their satisfaction with the coaches. "Through their patience, I learned how to better use my iPad," says Gloria Jennings, one of the participants.Thanks again AT&T for helping our seniors "rev up" on their technology skills!

 

Intergenerational Tutoring in San Antonio

Share your love of reading as you help a child develop a positive self image and enthusiasm for learning

The Intergenerational Tutoring Program, which started 15 years ago in San Antonio, pairs adults age 50 and older with children in grades K-4 to promote success in reading. Volunteers are needed to spend one hour a week with the same child throughout the school year.

  • No teaching experience is required
  • Free training is provided
  • Hours are flexible for vacations and appointments
  • Choose the school where you prefer to tutor

This is a great way to get involved in your community and help children get a better start in school. We are always interested in talking to new people interested in learning more about this opportunity. 

For more information please contact Gloria Jennings, program coordinator, at 210.236.5954.
