Overview


Mission Statement

OASIS Center International is a nonprofit organization, established in 2012. OASIS is a community development organization, working in partnership with both public and private entities to bring the arts back into the lives of our youth, with an emphasis on under-resourced youth in low-to-moderate income communities. Our vision is to inspire a generation of youth to fulfill the highest level of life achievement possible through discovery and development of their inherent creative gifts.

Background Statement

OASIS Center International is a 501(c)(3) community development organization, working in partnership with both public and private entities to bring the arts back into the lives of our youth, with an emphasis on under-resourced youth in low to moderate income communities. Established in 2012, the vision of OASIS is to inspire a generation of youth to fulfill the highest level of life achievement possible through discovery and development of their inherent creative gifts.

Recognizing the advantageous effects of arts education on both students and society as whole, we strive to expose youth to various areas of the arts through programs such as after-school arts mentoring, training and workshops, and art, music, theater, and media related events. We also work to engage and promote local artists by utilizing their talents and skills to deliver the content of the programs where possible.

Since our inception, Oasis has successfully served thousands of young people in underprivileged communities, encouraging their development of social and intellectual skills through the provision of innovative arts education. With the implementation of our first program, Architectural Design, OASIS has rapidly expanded our service delivery to offer a variety of arts initiatives, including Creative Art Journaling, Cartooning, and Tap Dance to students at numerous local schools, and is continuously experiencing increased demand for our services at additional institutions throughout the community.


Impact Statement

Accomplishments:

Board Development: Prioritization of fundraising, board member activation, and effective board meetings.
 
Program:
  • As of 2018, we have positively impacted nearly 10,000 under-resourced youth in LMI communities by exposing them to various art forms, developing their inherent creative gifts.
  • After four successful program years, OASIS is in position to scale our impact to new school districts.
Fund development efforts: In June 2018, OASIS would have completed its first 48 months of fundraising activities. We have been able to secure over $250,000 in donation and grants in 2017.

Goals:

Board Development:
  • Implementation of the concept of 'Give and Get' to every board. 
  • Strengthening of Board Committee Structure: the recent launch of diverse committees will require consistent attendance and commitment of the board. The board members need to be creative in outsourcing skill sets required for the committees and recruit more volunteers to support their individual goals.
Program:
  • Increasing headcount of qualified arts instructors from different arts discipline and retaining them for a minimum of 2 years.
  • Program growth: Identifying new school districts to expand our program in Orange County and Los Angeles County.
  • Providing scientifically significant results from the newly created Program metrics over the next five years. 
Fund development efforts: For fiscal year 2018, the OASIS board has set a year end goal to increase the revenue by 15%.

Needs Statement

  • Fund Development: OASIS partners with a consulting firm to receive pro-bono services in board strategy, executive director coaching, implementing board retreats and other on-going consulting regarding non-profit operations. We, as a board, learned that there is no 'one-time fix for all', rather, because of the changing funding environment and board membership, such consultants' continued effort is crucial for our long-term success. We would like to have the ability to afford such educational resource for the board.
  • Staff Development: OASIS would like to create a culture of continuous learning and development. If we had additional budget for staff development, we may be able to train staff for deficient skills or empower personal growth through leadership training. 
  • Technology: In the past, a major utilities company donated technology equipment to OASIS, and we were very disappointed with their donation. The equipment was either too old, slow (computer) or was non-functional. In order to compete in the high pace business environment, delivering excellent arts education program for the low income children -- certainly not looking for the latest and the greatest, yet the equipment must be functional and up-to-date. Also with an increase in staff members and interns, we are in need of more computers.

CEO Statement

OASIS understands the value of mentorship in a child’s life. We invite mentors from the local professional artist community, who commit to teaching, modeling and working with our students to help them discover their own amazing potential. We have a great team of mentor artists, as well as a board of directors, staff and volunteers. OASIS promotes a learning culture that emphasizes identity and full commitment to the success of the organization. At every level of involvement, our people are vested in the vision and the work.

Programs


Afterschool Arts Mentoring Program

 

The after-school program is specifically designed to mentor socioeconomically disadvantaged youth within LMI communities in the visual and performing arts. Since successfully implementing the pilot program at the Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) Elementary school in 2013, OASIS continues to impact the local communities by collaborating with Santa Ana Unified School District, expanding our outreach to multiple schools through after-school arts programming delivery and engaging professional artists to teach and mentor at-risk youth.

Through the OASIS Arts Project, OASIS provides students from numerous local schools with instruction in a variety of modalities, including architectural design, basics of watercolors, tap dance, cartooning and creative art journaling, which combines art with elements of literature. Each program consists of weekly instruction and spans the entire school year. At the beginning of each school year, participants are solicited and hand-picked by the principals of each of our partnering schools. Due to high demand, each school maintains a waitlist for admission into our program. As of 2017, OASIS has impacted over 6,000 students in Orange County.

In an effort to further encourage kids to embrace the arts, we invite mentoring from local professional artists, who commit to working with our students to help them discover their own amazing potential.

Program Short-Term Success 

Through close partnership with public and private sectors in the community, OASIS seeks to:

· Cultivate ambition in youth through the provision of programming which enhances both learning ability and social development.
· Positively impact under-resourced youth in underserved communities by exposing them to various art forms, and generating interest that could lead to the development of inherent creative gifts.
· Engage and promote local artists by utilizing them for mentoring opportunities.
· Create a replicable program model that can be used in multiple underserved communities – “OASIS In a Box.”
Program Long-Term Success 

Specifically, our anticipated long-term outcomes include:

1. Increase in the overall GPA of our students
2. Marked improvement in their language arts and math competencies
3. Improved school attendance amongst students participating in programs.
4. Enhanced attitudes towards school, as well as a more positive outlook on future demonstrated by program participants.
Program Success Monitored By 

The effectiveness of our programming is determined by assessing the impact of our programs on participants, using a number of criteria to evaluate their progress in academic, social, and leadership areas. Students participating in our programs are presented with qualitative surveys before and after the program, in an effort to assess our level of success in teaching and information delivery. The surveys are specifically designed to measure motivation, future aspiration, social support, positive values, and social competencies. OASIS Elementary school partners also provide Measures of Academic Performance (MAP) scores, which test reading, language usage, science and mathematics 3-4 times during the school. During the 2016-17 school year, Monte Vista Elementary School’s MAP scores showed that OASIS students had an average growth of 14.3 points in mathematics and 12.6 points in reading, compared to the school average growth of 11 points both in mathematics and reading. These objective assessments support the positive correlation between involvement in arts programs and academic improvement. All quantitative and qualitative data will be further analyzed by a professional evaluator and Professor of Sociology at a local prestigious university. OASIS continues to invite ongoing feedback from parents, teachers, and school administrators. Continued school district recommendations are another indicator of the positive impact we have on those we serve.

Examples of Program Success 
One of our favorite testimonials comes from Alejandra, a fifth grader who graduated our program last year. Alejandra has ADHD and has difficulty with focus and motivation. The OASIS Tap Program has taught Alejandra to ask for help, listen to constructive criticism, and put what she learns into action. She is the first to ask, “Can you show me that again?” and “Is
this right? Like this?” This has transferred into Alejandra’s classroom as well. Previously, Alejandra would shut down and disengage in class when something was hard for her. She has learned to ask for help and to keep trying until she gets it. Through Tap, she has learned that persistence pays off!

CEO/Executive Director Jin Sung
CEO Term Start Mar 2012
CEO Email [email protected]
CEO Experience
Ms. Jin Sung is the founder and Executive Director of OASIS Center International, an
arts non-profit organization serving the youth of low income communities of Southern
California. Ms. Sung currently serves as Board Chairman for National Diversity
Coalition, Board of Director for National Asian American Coalition, Community
Advisory Board member for The Capital Corps, Royal Business Bank, Frontier
Communications, Korean Church Community Development, and Pastor and CFO of a
multi-cultural Church in Norwalk, California. She is passionate about bridging
corporate America with underserved communities, and affects public policy by
advocating for minority access and social justice.
 
As a child, her father was a prominent Korean diplomat allowing Ms. Sung to explore
the diverse cultures, languages and art of the nations: Vietnam, Denmark, India,
Indonesia, and Korea. This early childhood experience was rich with opportunities to
meet not only wealthy and influential people, including ambassadors and national
dignitaries, but also with many whose fortunes were less than secure. She emerged
from this experience with a passion for the arts and for those in need of
encouragement to achieve the dreams of their lives. She was convinced that through
the transformative power of the arts, a generation could be inspired to translate their
dreams into reality. Thus was born the vision for OASIS Center International. Her
degree in Psychology and Business Management from the University of California,
Irvine, and subsequent professional and practical experiences in automotive industry
as business analyst for companies such as Volvo Cars, Kia Motors America and Young
& Rubicam Advertising has given her a unique ability to see issues both from a social
as well as a practical view. Ms. Sung currently resides with her husband and three
children in Laguna Hills, CA.
