As children gear up for their second semester of school, volunteer tutors are needed to help them finish out the year successfully.

The OASIS volunteer tutoring program is for community members who are interested in sharing the love of reading with a child. By becoming a literacy tutor, you will support a student once a week for an hour in the skills of reading and writing.

The program is sponsored by Madison School District and OASIS. OASIS is a nonprofit organization that partners with school districts to pair adults with students needing literacy support. This tutoring program serves children in Madison School District’s four elementary schools (Heights, Camelview, Rose Lane and Simis) and targets children needing additional academic support in literacy.

Tutors will receive training by a reading specialist along with a tutor handbook, bag and supplies. The training will be held at Madison Camelview, 2002 E. Campbell Ave., from Jan. 26-28, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
