Organization of Adult Alumni and Students in Service

Our Mission

The mission of OAASIS is to link students and alumni to individuals and organizations

involved in adult and community education, to address common and shared goals, to

spearhead statewide efforts in encouraging individuals to meet their potential and excel in

lifelong learning, and to inspire others to advocate for adult education and family literacy.

What Makes Us Stand Out

OAASIS Team Members understand the needs of students because they are all current or former adult education students themselves. Team Members represent students at the local level by contributing at their adult education site. Many assist with student orientations and student retention, organize community outreach projects, offer peer mentoring, student organization activities, fundraisers for scholarships, and so much more! Team Members advocate and bring awareness to adult education statewide by organizing events, such as their annual Legislative Dinner, to give students the opportunity to share their stories with legislators from their districts.
