OASES History
OASES began in 1983 as a service club at UC Berkeley! In 1991, the club evolved into a non-profit organization that now serves over 400 students. Today, OASES recruits approximately 150 tutors from UC Berkeley every semester. OASES has the largest volunteer base in Oakland. Recently, OASES has merged with East Bay Asian Youth Center, an organization with similar goals and interests.
