My name is Reilly Lerner, and I am a student worker at Oasis Católico Santa Rafaela, a volunteer-run after school tutoring program for the children of the Pinewoods community. We rely on college students in the Athens area to serve as our tutors, and we are looking to begin registration for the Fall 2016 semester so that we can be sure to have enough volunteers to make our program meaningful. We are in full swing for our Spring 2016 Semester of tutoring here at Oasis, but are always looking for new ways to recruit new students as tutors. We would like to extend the opportunity of tutoring to as many students as possible.
The community where we are located, Pinewoods, is a predominantly Latino community where the first language of most of our students is Spanish, though we strive to recruit tutors of all majors and no knowledge of the Spanish language is required. At Oasis, we work to empower the children of the Athens Pinewoods community to excel through academic enrichment and mentoring. We offer tutoring to children ages 3 years old through the 3rd grade, every Monday-Thursday, 2:30-5:00 p.m. in Pinewoods. Volunteers are only asked to come one day a week of his/her choosing.
This is a wonderful way to get involved in the Athens community. You can learn a lot about yourself while making a difference in the lives of these children. Our only requirement of our tutors is a big heart! We are a volunteer-run organization and cannot operate without the service of our wonderful volunteers!
You can find more information about our program at www.oasistutors.org.
