The OASIS Tutoring Program is beneficial for students and volunteers. Through the OASIS Intergenerational Tutoring Program, residents of the Mehlville School District who are at least 50 years old have the opportunity to make a difference in the life of a student. The District currently is looking for individuals interested in tutoring a young child for one hour each week to further develop the student’s reading and language skills and to instill a positive attitude towards learning.
Tutors receive 12 hours of initial training, and the program offers continued support through regular tutor meetings where volunteers can share experiences, solve problems and build friendships. Training and materials are provided and no teaching experience is needed.
OASIS is a national education organization designed to enrich the lives of adults age 50 plus through programs in the arts, humanities, health, technology and volunteer service.
