A Program For Youth Entrepreneurs

Oasis VENTURE is a collaboration of the Oasis Center and The Unlikely Company Founder, Marcus Whitney, designed to help youth create and start viable social enterprises.  Launched in 2016, The program guides youth through a 16-week curriculum in entrepreneurship with a specific focus on creating social enterprises that address challenges facing young people.  The Oasis Venture initiative, sparked by Whitney’s passion for creating new pathways out of poverty, is a creative extension of Oasis’s workforce development and service-learning programs. It is designed to immerse highly capable yet often marginalized young people in the world of entrepreneurship with a goal of young people actually creating and starting businesses that address a pressing social need.


Huge thank you to all our 2016 mentors, entrepreneurs and teachers!
