Coalition Spirit Of Partnership Award

Very exciting news, on Thursday, October 30th, the Nashville Prevention Partnership announced our Youth Overcoming Drug Abuse program (YODA) has been honored with the Coalition Spirit of Partnership Award for our work with Oasis Center: Underground Art Studio! We are thrilled to celebrate the wonderful collaboration and the work of our young people and amazing artists involved in the program!

Each year the Nashville Prevention Partnership hosts their annual awards dinner and fundraiser.  This year, it was hosted at Maggiano’s Little Italy. The fundraiser is held to benefit NPP so it can unite individuals, organizations and institutions together to reduce substance abuse in Nashville.

The Annual Awards Dinner is an opportunity for NPP to recognize people and organizations that have made considerable contributions to the field of prevention and/or reducing substance abuse as well as support recovery within the Nashville community.

STARS Youth Overcoming Drug Abuse program (YODA) was awarded the Coalition Spirit of Partnership Award with the Oasis Center: Underground Art Studio. This award is for a group of organizations working together with a goal of prevention and reducing substance abuse in the Nashville community. Without working together, the results and accomplishments would not have been possible.

We were thrilled to hear the news and want to thank the Oasis Center: Underground Art Studio for working with us and the Nashville Prevention Partnership for the award!YODA_Oasis Art Studio
