Vice President of Action, Advocacy, and Education
Aaron McGee is the Vice President of Action, Advocacy, and Education at Oasis Center.
He brings a great blend of leadership experience, program experience and a passion for developing staff and youth to the table, and he combines that experience and passion with a very thoughtful, balanced approach and a servant leader’s heart.
Aaron worked as an independent contractor in 2020, where he managed projects around racial reconciliation for private, government and non-profit clients.
