Tutoring opportunities in the Greater St. Louis area
Help a child today, for tomorrow
You can help a child learn to love reading and learning! Oasis Intergenerational Tutoring pairs volunteers with children in grades K-3 to work one-on-one each week as their tutors, mentors and friends.
You can choose from one of our participating school districts in the greater St. Louis area. You’ll work with the same child each week throughout the school year. Training is provided.
You can tutor one child or several, on a one-on-one basis each week throughout the school year. Other volunteer opportunities to support the tutoring program are available.
“I have a lot of respect for the challenges that today’s teachers deal with,” says Lou Cohen, Oasis tutor. “If the hour or so each week we spend with these kids can help them learn, it’s well worth our time.”
Oasis Intergenerational Tutoring is celebrating 30 years of making an impact!
Oasis Intergenerational Tutoring is offered in 14 states in over 20 U.S. cities with more than 4,000 volunteers. This unique program has reached more than 485,000 children since it’s launch in St. Louis, MO in 1989 and is one of the largest tutoring programs of its kind.
“Every day, Oasis tutors are making an impact in children’s lives, not only improving their literacy skills but also their self-esteem, class attendance and interest in reading and language arts,” says Mary Click, national director of the program. “Reading scores collected from tutored students in the 2018-2019 school year demonstrated that 98 percent showed improvement.”
