The mission of OASIS is to positively impact youth through replicable arts mentoring programs and to enhance the skills of local artists through community engagement.
OASIS Companies International (dba OASIS Center International) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit community development organization working in coalition with both public and private entities. We facilitate after school youth mentoring programs in cooperation with local principals and engage underserved communities in arts oriented youth development effort. OASIS is committed to restoring arts and cultural enrichment at the core of communities, and we believe this starts with a focus on the youth. We operate two primary programs to service under-resourced youth, each of which serves to focus our staff’s efforts towards achieving our mission. Our After-school Arts Mentoring Program and Arts-based Community Outreach efforts collectively embrace our mission to positively impact at risk youth through replicable arts mentoring initiatives and to enhance the skills of local artists through community engagement.
