The OASIS Intergenerational Tutoring Program
OASIS trains and places volunteer tutors with children in grades K - 3, building the student's self-esteem and love of learning.
Tutoring truly changes the life of a child while it enriches your own. Children give their tutors a feeling of connectedness and a sense of purpose.
Tutors work one on one with a child who has been referred by the teacher.
Currently we have tutors at several elementary schools in the Syracuse City School District and Willow Field Elementary School in the Liverpool Central School District.
Training and materials are provided. No teaching experience is required but you must have a love of learning, a love of children and reliable transportation.
For nearly two decades, OASIS Intergenerational Tutoring has consistently improved students' reading and writintg ability, academic performance and attitudes about learning. The program taps the tremendous potential of committed volunteers who have the time, patience, training and life experience to make a profound difference in the lives of children.
