Youth at Oaks Behavioral Residential in Jackson, TN are part of the Oasis' TN Learning Collaborative serving youth across the state with programming through Wyman's TOP® model. Through interactive, engaging, skill building groups and then using their skills to plan, implement, reflect on and celebrate service-learning opportunities, the youth are able to feel a sense of accomplishment while giving back to their communities.
During this pandemic. the youth have been particularly creative in brainstorming ideas that will not take them into the actual community so they can stay safe. This group made posters with uplifting messages for cancer patients. The staff will place these in their community.
