Do you know your spot in the OAaSIS yet?

Posted by on October 15, 2010


Various spots are being filled weekly/shared as volunteers get excited about the work, benefits and results of joining OAaSIS.
Just in case you forgot, the OAaSIS International Foundation needs YOUR help to make the dreams of many Jamaicans come through, and yes strengthening the tools to make Jamaica advance as a nation and in the human race. Youth also learn to apply creativity in all other areas they explore from business to.. ahh well just about all areas.

The Foundation empowers youth, sensitising them through the arts. The Arts are a critical tool in development and advancement of any people. Just think what the world would be like if no one was able to read, nor write, sing, dance, draw.

Aside from placing proper focus on the arts, youth all over are shown how to discover, hone and improve their skills and talents. They learn of the many careers existing from painting, architecture, stage and theatre production to being a chef.. all creative works.

The Foundation also has an ongoing club Pickney International Creative Youth Club establishing ongoing relationships with visited areas and to enable individuals to continue discovering and improving their skills. The arts are after all vital in understanding numeracy, literacy and even the sciences.
