OASIS Volunteer Reading Tutors have assisted Jefferson County Schools students with reading and writing for more than 25 years in nearly 20 schools.

Volunteers are invited to join its 70 tutors in this very fulfilling volunteer opportunity, by taking its once-a-year training sessions Sept. 11 and 13, 9 a.m. to noon, to learn its methods and approach.

Tutors work with one or two students, in kindergarten through third grade, for one hour, once a week, in a neighborhood Jeffco school.

“Our efforts tutoring reading and writing have benefited hundreds of students,” said Joe Gadd, a volunteer who has tutored through OASIS for 11 years.
