History

Oasis was formed in 1985 by a group of concerned community members who wanted to help LGBTQ youth cope with discrimination and find support. Oasis is celebrating over 28 years of history and we are currently compiling an Oasis History Project to document the many great achievements and milestones witnessed over the years. If you have an Oasis story to share, please contact us. 

More than 5,000 youth, staff and volunteers have participated in the program since 1985 and we would like to hear from as many of you as possible.

If you are an Oasis alum or past volunteer, get back in touch with Oasis by emailing oasis@oasisyouthcenter.org
