About Us: Oasis For Girls partners with high school aged 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. Our core programmatic array, the Springboard Series, consisting of the RISE Life Skills, CREATE Arts Education, and ENVISION Career Exploration programs, is designed to address the particular needs and interests of low-income young women of color. Together, our programs empower girls to develop confidence, self-advocacy, and self-care tools for long-term healthy growth; understand social justice issues and advocate for change in their communities; and pave paths to successful academic and career goals.
About Shine: Every fall, Oasis For Girls hosts an annual fundraiser, the Shine Gala, to raise critical funds for the organization and raise the organization’s profile in the local community. We are recruiting Shine Committee volunteers to help us create an event that is fun, engaging, and successful.
About the Shine Committee: We are looking for 4-6 volunteers who are willing to share their skills and expertise and can commit to at least 15 hours per month from April-September, helping us with the event’s program development, securing speakers and photographers, doing outreach for ticket sales and sponsorships, managing the host committee, and curating amazing silent auction items! The Development Director and the Advisory Board Lead will oversee the Shine Committee and provide direction while relying on the expertise and creativity the Committee brings. This is a great chance to get to know Oasis and explore other volunteer opportunities with us!
