An OASIS of Volunteer Tutors
Literally Speaking: Mar/Apr 2014
OASIS—WINTER 2014 Congratulations to our first OASIS graduating class!
Late last year,
Literacy Coordinator, Cherall Weiss, visited the OASIS Senior Center and gave a
brief presentation at one of their monthly meetings to recruit new volunteer
tutors. The response was extremely
positive and led to a new relationship between NMPL and OASIS. For the first
time, both a Tutor Orientation and Tutor Training series were held at the
As a result, we have eight new tutors who are committed to the program.
The venue has also been opened up as an alternate location for our
tutor-learner pairs to meet for weekly sessions. We are hoping to offer an
OASIS Tutor Orientation and Tutor Training session at least two times a year.
We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with OASIS members!
