FullSizeRenderSummer Leadership Institute (SLI) – 2019

In just a couple short months, Oasis of Hope will offer our Summer Leadership Institute (SLI), to neighborhood youth. Our Youth Development Team are hard at work recruiting boys and girls from each milestone (High, Middle, and Elementary ages) to spend the summer growing into our front runners to assist us in spearheading our goal of continuing to empower the North Memphis community.

Through the SLI, we purpose to equip our apprentices with the tools and support needed to advance in academics, leadership, teamwork, and life skills, through dedicated life-on-life mentorship, tutoring, training, team building exercises, and peer-to peer-networking. It’s a heavy challenge, and our team is committed to taking on the task.

Our SLI students will also learn about topics rooted in biblical truth on: Identity, God as our Father, Being a Child of God, Jesus as a child, How to honor our mother/father/friends/and ourselves, Home cred vs. Street Cred, How to Become Better Communicators, How to Love Yourself, Reputation, Being an Image Bearer of God, Dealing with Conflict, and more!

Students will also be given the opportunity to visit some of the best our city has to offer by taking Learning Excursions to Slave Haven, the Memphis Zoo, Shelby Forest, The National Civil Rights Museum, Memphis Rox, and The Pink Palace to name a few. Oasis will also be partnering with Memphis Kids In Nature (MKIN) this summer. MKIN exists to simply get kids out to experience and appreciate the outdoors.

This summer SLI students will be blessed with an opportunity to spend a week at For the Kingdom Camp. Our elementary, middle and high schoolers will each have a chance to experience this powerful Bible camp! Last summer we saw nearly two dozen students make decisions for Christ. Our Middle Schoolers will spend their final week of camp at Service Over Self (S.O.S.) investing in others by repairing roofs along with being invested in themselves.

We, at Oasis, could not do the work we do without the individuals all throughout our Memphis community who sacrificially give of their time, talent, and treasure to help our ministry go. We’d like to ask that you consider donating to Oasis of Hope to help our students maximize their summer. Give specifically to help Send A Kid to Camp by donating here. Thank you for your continued support!
