OASES began in 1983 as a service club at University of California,
Berkeley. In 1991 the club evolved into a nonprofit that now serves
more than 400 students. With a highly effective recruitment and
training model, OASES is composed of 400 volunteers providing
tutoring and enrichment services to predominantly Asian-American
youth from immigrant families.
While all students receive academic support, enrichment activities
differ for each grade level. Elementary students are exposed
to activities like arts and sports to help cultivate their talents
and interests. Middle school students focus on identity issues
intrinsic to their stage of development, such as their role and impact
in the community and the celebration of their ethnic identity.
Skill-building activities for high school students concentrate on
college preparation, career readiness and financial literacy.
