Share your love of reading with a child in need.

The OASIS Intergenerational Tutoring Program promotes literacy with a proven approach to help children read at grade level. Since 1993, the San Antonio OASIS Intergenerational Tutoring has paired adults age 50 and older with children in grades 1-3 to promote success in reading. Volunteers are needed to spend one hour a week with the same child throughout the school year. OASIS Tutors have been helping children build reading skills, self-esteem and positive attitudes toward learning.

  • No teaching experience is required
  • Must be over 50 years of age or older
  • Free training is provided
  • Hours are flexible for vacations and appointments
  • Choose the school and grade level you prefer to tutor

You will need to pass a background check, (no cost to you), attend orientation and tutor training. Once you are trained, you select a school from our extensive list in 3 school districts then use books, learning materials, and supplies all provided by OASIS to help a child learn to read.

The 2022 Fall Training dates for the Tutoring Program are (must attend both days in person):

  • September Training: Thursday, Sept. 22 from 9am-3pm and Friday, Sept. 23rd from 9am-12pm
  • October Training: Thursday, Oct. 20 from 9am-3pm and Friday, Oct. 21 from 9am-12pm
