Connecting Youth With Safe Communities

“Young people truly find Oasis here.”

At the Oasis Center, we connect youth with ways they can get involved and be their authentic selves. Many youth simply don’t have a community in which they feel they can truly connect with others, and that’s what Oasis seeks to provide. Our communities range from Just Us, a dedicated program for LGBTQ teens, to our bike workshop and art studio, which encourage self-expression.

Just Us Coordinator Joseph Clark remembers that “it’s important for young people to start seeing their value in any community space and understanding what they bring to the communities that they’re in.”

Watch this video to hear from Joseph about how one teen’s involvement in the Just Us community led to powerful changes.
