Do you remember who taught you to read? Do you remember how it opened up the world to you? You can help open the world for a child by providing individual attention and encouragement through the San Diego Oasis Tutoring Program. According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), 69% of 3rd graders in California are not reading at the proficient level. This problem has far-reaching impact, including lower high school graduation rates, and can follow them into adulthood. Due to COVID-related school closures, UNESCO anticipates a 20% increase in children falling behind the minimum proficiency level in reading. You can truly change a child's life in one hour per week.
Each year Oasis places older adults (50+) in local San Diego elementary schools, helping children grades K-4 enhance their reading and writing skills. Free training and materials are provided. We would love to have you join us!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
