Who We Are

We are a registered non-profit organization in the U.S. and Mexico.
We are a dedicated group who share a common mission
to serve families in our community.

Program Director

Marcos Lee became the Program Director in March 2022. He grew up in the San Quintín Valley. His father moved to Baja from the U.S. many years ago as a missionary working with the Triqui people. After high school, Marcos went to college in California and earned an Associates of Arts degree, but because of an injury, he returned home in 2016. He earned a Bachelor's degree in Marketing and has just begun working towards a Master's  degree in Biblical Studies. Marcos has years of experience working with different ministries and doing  freelancing in media. He recently became the co-pastor of the local church where he grew up and works with the youth, doing outreaches in the community and teaching children and adults.


Site Managers

Las Misiones Campus- Karen Aguilar

Karen grew up in the area and started working as a teacher at Oasis shortly after her two sisters became teachers at Oasis many years ago. After several years as a teacher, she stepped into the Site Manager role at our original campus in Las Misiones. She is passionate about working with the teenagers and young adults at Oasis, and is instrumental in supporting the Program Director with a variety of tasks. She also helps coordinate a recreational running team made up of Oasis staff and students that compete in local 5k, 10k and half marathon races! 


Las Aves Campus- Karina Bautista

Karina joined Oasis in 2017. She was born in Sinaloa, Mexico and has lived in Baja California since she was six.  She started as a teacher in Las Aves and has been the site manager now for several years. Her creativity and energy has been integral to the success and growth of this second Oasis location. Karina is married to Chuy, who works in construction and they have one daughter together who has practically grown up in Oasis. She loves to see the kids learn and work hard to achieve their dreams. Her passion is to continue helping underprivileged kids in more communities so they stay in school and are motivated to succeed. 

Triqui Campus- Cynthia Aguilar

Cynthia started as one of the first teachers hired at Oasis in 2012 and recently became the director of our 3rd location. She is so great with the little kids and her gentle spirit is loved by all. Two of her sisters also work at Oasis and the rest of her family works in construction, farming, and party decorating! Apart from teaching, Cynthia loves to continue learning and is currently studying naturopathy, wine making, physical therapy, and natural cosmetology

Local Staff Members

Our staff members include one site manager at each of the three campuses,  a full-time property manager at the original Oasis, and multiple teachers, cooks, interns, and volunteers. All of our staff are from the local community and many of our teachers are college students studying to be school teachers. Our staff members are all passionate about serving and helping other people to improve their lives. Between the three Oasis campuses we have about 33 staff members.
