How To Get Involved

Joining the OEF

Membership/Donation Form

Fill this form out online, print and mail in your membership and/or donation today!


Mentoring

The OEF provides mentors to students of all ages. Typically, a student is recommended by their Guidance Counselor. A Mentor does not assume the role of a teacher or parent; a mentor is an adult friend who fosters a one-on-one relationship with a student. Mentoring is done once a week during the school day. They may meet with students in the Guidance Office and/or eat lunch with them. Activities might include talking about the student's interests or playing a learning game with younger students. Goals of the mentoring relationship include:

Improving the student's self-confidence
Encouraging the student to do their best in the classroom

The OEF has training materials available to help mentors and we will help you through the Clearance process as well.


Tutoring

The OEF provides tutors to supplement classroom learning at all levels. In addition to helping the students with subject matter, the tutor can become a role model and instill confidence. In order to assure the safety of our students, the Oxford Area School Ditrict requires clearances; the OEF will pay any fees.


Volunteering in the Classroom

The OEF Volunteers are integral to both teachers and students. Volunteers help in the classroom on a regular or an occasional basis. Below are some examples of volunteer needs:

Classroom aide
Preparing teaching materials
Providing bilingual help for students who may be struggling
Library or clerical help

Please, won't you consider becoming a Mentor, Tutor, or Classroom Volunteer? By serving this way, you can make a real difference in the life of a child. The School District and the OEF truly appreciate every one of our volunteers. If you have any questions about any of these opportunities, please call Kim Lewin, our Volunteer Coordinator, at 610-932-7200 or by email at oxfordedfound@yahoo.com. Thank you.

OEF C.A.R.E.S. (Community as Resources for Education)

OEF CARES is an initiative by the Foundation to provide resources for teachers. A database has been created whereby people in our community and beyond can share their expertise with teachers by email, phone, or classroom visit.
