Community Nashville Building Bridges
At Oasis Center, a lot of what we do is Building Bridges.
So it makes sense that in 2010 we launched a unique partnership with Community Nashville to bring its award winning anti-bias programs, “Building Bridges”, under the umbrella of our Youth Engagement and Action Department. The overall goal of the Building Bridges programs is to educate young people for effective leadership in a diverse society.
Take a look at this video to see what Camp Anytown is all about! What Is Camp Anytown?
Oasis Center currently offers two core Building Bridges programs:
Camp Anytown: A human relations and leadership program for high school students in the Nashville area. Delegates will be selected to be part of this life-changing week of overnight summer camp. AnyTown participants have the opportunity to live with and get to know people from many different racial, ethnic, religious, cultural and socioeconomic groups. AnyTown helps students explore their own identities and biases. At Anytown, youth create a model community based on respect, understanding and peace. From this our young citizens develop skills that they can use to positively impact their communities.

Camp MiniTown: A three-day residential leadership and skills development retreat held in the spring or fall for students from both public and private schools. The program helps students learn how to interrupt prejudice and be a catalyst for inclusive behavior.
