Description

About Oasis For Girls:

The mission of Oasis For Girls is to partner with girls and young women of color from under-resourced communities to help them cultivate the skills, knowledge, and confidence to discover their dreams and build strong futures.

About Our Programs:

Our Springboard Series for girls is a year long sequence that emphasizes the development of both internal awareness and external skills. The Series provides girls with opportunities to create trusting relationships with positive, supportive adults, to develop a sense of identity and partnership with their group, and to build and practice key skills.

1. RISE Life-Skills Education:

•"Discovering Myself" focuses on positive decision making to navigate the challenges of adolescence. Workshop topics include women's rights, safer sex, self-defense, healthy relationships, nutrition, and more.

2. CREATE Arts Education:

•"Discovering My World" emphasizes the development of creative writing skills toward improved academic performance and healthy self expression. The Arts Education program is offered through an innovative collaboration with Writers Corps, a program that places professional writers in communities to teach creative writing to youth.

3. ENVISION Career Exploration:

•"Building My Future" combines hands-on technology training, academic support, and job readiness skills to support young women in paving a path to school and career.

The Springboard Series is offered three times per year, 2-4 hours per day, in 8-12 week sessions. Participants earn $300- 500 stipends during their tenure in the program.
