Volunteers wanted for nonprofit tutoring program

oasis-tutor.jpgOASIS, a national nonprofit educational organization designed to enhance the quality of life for mature adults, and the Long Beach Unified School District are hosting a coffee and tea information meeting on Wednesday, July 16 at 11 a.m. at the OASIS Center, located on the lower level of the Macy’s department store in the Lakewood Center Mall.
The intergenerational tutoring program matches volunteers 50 years and older who can donate one hour per week with kindergarten through third-grade students to provide them one-on-one help with improving reading skills. No teaching experience is needed.
“OASIS volunteers bring a wide range of talents to their roles,” said Caroline Contreras, program coordinator. “Through shared experiences, tutors spark the interests of their students and inspire them to write their own stories, making language and reading come alive.”
The next training for the program will take place on all three of the following dates: Thursday, July 24; Friday, July 25; and Thursday, September 4.
For more information, contact Contreras at (562) 601-5009.
