Oasis For Girls partners with high school girls of color from under-resourced communities across San Francisco to help them cultivate the skills, knowledge, and confidence to discover their dreams and build strong futures. Our girls face greater barriers in accessing resources and opportunities than their peers, and are particularly vulnerable to a variety of systemic inequalities and policies. Our Springboard Series of girl-focused programs encourages young women to explore the diversity of their experiences to build bridges of sisterhood across lines of race, culture, and neighborhood; become advocates for social justice in their communities; and pave fulfilling successful academic and career pathways.
