Oasis and UPchieve Partnership
UPchieve is honored to announce a strategic partnership with Oasis - A Haven for Women and Children, which will give hundreds of at-risk youth and low-income women access to free, online, and on-demand tutoring and college counseling.
Oasis has been changing lives since 1997 by providing empowering and enriching programs to youths from the tough streets of Paterson, New Jersey. Oasis also serves over 300 women from different backgrounds by providing educational opportunities that help them rise out of poverty.
Together, Oasis and UPchieve will tackle a new goal: closing the achievement gap through improved access to resources. UPchieve, a nonprofit founded in 2017, aims to connect students to the resources they need to succeed. Through the partnership with UPchieve, Oasis students will be able to access free, online, and on-demand tutoring and college counseling via UPchieve’s web and mobile platforms. UPchieve’s pilot with Oasis will launch in early 2018 and continue through the end of the school year.
UPchieve is able to provide on-demand assistance to students thanks to its Academic Coaches: virtual volunteers who are college-educated and have a wide range of skill sets. Volunteers who sign up to assist students through UPchieve’s platform are able to designate their areas of expertise, then connect with students as much or as little as their schedules permit. UPchieve is currently recruiting additional volunteers to work directly with the women and children of Oasis during its upcoming pilot.
