FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Make a difference: Help a child grow their reading skills

Do you or someone you know want to become more involved with your neighborhood school? The Gresham-Barlow School District’s Oasis Volunteer Program is looking for parents, grandparents, neighbors and friends of our schools to work with young children who are struggling to learn to read.
 
As an Oasis volunteer you will spend one hour a week, during the school day, working one-on-one with a child in grades 1-5 to build reading and language skills, self-esteem, and positive attitudes toward learning. Oasis provides training, materials, and on-going support from our staff at no cost to you.
 
The training will take place in two three-hour sessions, for a total of six hours. The winter training dates are Wednesday, January 22 from 9 am-12 pm and Friday, January 24 from 9 am-12 pm. Tutors are encouraged to attend a monthly support meeting to share experiences with other tutors, receive additional training and materials.
 
No teaching experience is required. The role of an Oasis Tutor is that of a friend, offering experience, patience, encouragement, caring, and time.
 
If you, or someone you know would be interested in learning more about becoming an Oasis Tutor, please call Marilyn Shephard 503-665-3544 or email msshephard@frontier.com.
