Newport Beach Library: OASIS Graduating Class

An OASIS of Volunteer Tutors
Newport/Mesa ProLiteracy,
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 Center.

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!
