Mission: The OASIS Intergenerational Tutoring Program promotes literacy with a proven approach designed to build children's self-esteem and positive attitudes toward learning while strengthening literacy skills. Working with elementary schools, OASIS pairs older adults with young children with underdeveloped reading and language skills. The adults work one-on-one with the students each week as their tutors, mentors, and friends.
