School district invites adults to ‘give gift of time and help a child learn to read’

Ramona Unified School District invites adults to volunteer to tutor a child and share their love of books and reading by joining the district’s OASIS (Older Adult Service and Information Systems) tutors in their 14th year of helping children improve their reading skills.

OASIS Intergenerational Tutoring Program pairs adult volunteers with students in grades one through three, one-on-one, once a week for an hour. No teaching experience is necessary, just a warm heart and a desire to help a child experience the joy of reading, notes Lyn Hardy, district employee coordinating the program.

“The gift of your time can make a world of difference for a child,” she said.

The next OASIS training will be Jan. 14 and 15, from 1:30 to 3:30 both days, in Montecito High School Library, 720 Ninth St. For more information and to register for the free training, contact Hardy at 760-787-4317 or lhardy@ramonausd.net.

“We provide the lessons, books, and materials,” said Hardy.
