"I always rejoice in the little accomplishments"

Tutor Carol Gabbert celebrates her students' success

When Carol Gabbert began tutoring 18 years ago, she had no idea how much it would impact her life. After years of working as a preschool teacher when her children were young, Carol wanted to try something different when a friend suggested she become an OASIS Intergenerational Tutor. She looks forward to each new year and the adventures that lie ahead.

Getting healthy by giving back

The perfect volunteer opportunity is out there for you!

I don’t need research to tell me that volunteering improves the health of adults ages 50 and older; I see it every day at OASIS. Older adults who volunteer are more likely to maintain strength and functional ability, or the ability to perform every day activities, which is key to maintaining independence.

Kids say the darndest things

And their OASIS tutors love it!

A student told his OASIS tutor, "Wednesday is my favorite day. I get pizza for lunch and you!” Wouldn’t you love to know that you ranked #1 on someone’s list—right alongside pizza? That's just one of the many wonderful comments I hear from OASIS volunteer tutors. You can learn more about what it's like to be a tutor ... and rank #1 alongside pizza.

How do you decide to support a non-profit?

OASIS volunteer Tamara Rhomberg discusses what matters

Mail just isn’t what it used to be. Remember the days when people actually sent letters to each other? Now the mailbox is filled with junk mail and bills. Just in the past week, I’ve received dozens of letters from nonprofits. Each is worthy of support and I want to contribute and often do what I can. But how do you decide which organizations to commit to?
