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

Where youth grow, thrive and create positive change.

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 3,500 youth and families across a broad spectrum of programs and services designed to help them reach their full potential.

Our philosophy is simple: 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.
