OASIS Tutoring Program

Oasis Tutoring

OASIS Intergenerational Tutoring Program trains and places adults as reading mentors with elementary students in public schools.  Consider volunteering right here in your community at Mark Twain Elementary School. You’ll meet with the same child weekly throughout the school year to read, talk, and write stories.  No teaching experience is required; we emphasize your patience, compassion, and humor. By bringing the joy of reading to a young mind, you will also be a role model, a mentor and a friend to a student K-4!

Interested in this possibility?  Join US!   Contact OASIS Albuquerque at 505-884-4529 or Vicki DeVigne at and we will schedule your training and pay for your APS background check clearance.

OASIS promotes healthy aging through a three-fold approach: lifelong learning, healthy living and social engagement. We seek to impact adult lives through partnerships to share knowledge, offer evidence and research based programs, and adapt to meet the needs of diverse audiences. 

One child, one tutor, one school year. Two lives forever changed -

Kids Cook!

Kids Cook

Kids Cook! is a student nutrition, basic exercise and food education program to improve the literacy and health of children and their families. We involve elementary school students in hands-on learning about nutrition while preparing culturally diverse foods. Program activities use an integrated curriculum format that provides opportunities for interdisciplinary learning. Included in each Kids Cook! class is 10 minutes of basic physical activity. Current research shows strong links between physical activity and retention of curriculum and students accept a variety of new healthy foods when they are allowed a safe environment to explore, taste and prepare these foods.  To learn more about the Kids Cook! program, visit their website at
