“Youth can do a lot of really powerful and important things. We just need people to believe in us.”


Located in Nashville, Oasis Center is a nationally-recognized organization on a mission to help young people in Middle Tennessee move into a happy, healthy, and productive adulthood. Every year, we engage over 4,000 youth and families across a broad spectrum of programs and services designed to help them reach their full potential.

Our Mission
Building relationships that advance youth well-being, amplify youth voice, and inspire action toward a just community.

Our Philosophy
Rather than viewing youth as passive recipients, we see them as full stakeholders who hold the keys to addressing some of the most challenging problems facing our city, including violence reduction, improved graduation rates, bullying prevention, discrimination, intolerance, and more.

Our Stand Against Racism and Racist Systems
At Oasis Center, we believe in social justice and racial equality, and we condemn institutions whose policies and practices lead to injustice and hate.
