||Would you be willing to spend one hour a 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, school districts 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.
Tutors may volunteer in the Aurora Public Schools or the Jefferson County School District.
