Oasis celebrates older Americans every day.
May is Older Americans Month, a national observance led by the U.S. Administration on Aging that was first recognized in 1963. Today, Older Americans Month is an opportunity to do what Oasis does best year round: celebrate all that is possible when we stay healthy, engaged and committed to lifelong learning.

A champion for literacy and Oasis

Former First Lady Barbara Bush’s commitment to literacy is well known and we’re proud that she knew about Oasis Intergenerational Tutoring. She was kind enough to offer these words of encouragement to Oasis tutors during a training video that was produced in the 1990s. Her passion for the power of mentorship for all children remains relevant and impactful. We’re thankful for her life. 


Oasis, successful aging and making an impact

Oasis Institute President Paul Weiss has a lot to say about Oasis.   "I’m excited to be a part of a national organization that’s impacting lives all over the country and also in my hometown. There is a perception around what aging really is, and I like that Oasis turns that on its head.” Read more in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
