Tutoring program seeking volunteers

The Greenwood Oasis Tutoring program is recruiting older adults to become elementary school student tutors.

Oasis recruits adults older than 50 who are willing to volunteer an hour a week with a student on academics and possibly social activities.

Tutors offer students warmth, guidance and experience from their lives to help them connect and increase skills in reading, writing and speaking while giving them a friend and mentor.

If you are interested, call 317-396-3751 for more information.

The 12-hour training is scheduled for Sept. 14 to 16 at Westwood Elementary School in Greenwood.
