BALTIMORE, Feb. 8, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Oasis Experiences, a leading hospitality and management partner, is honored to announce that CEO, Kenneth Svendsen, will be joining the Board of Directors at Living Classrooms Foundation, an organization based in Baltimore, MD, and Washington D.C., that provides access to award-winning hands-on education, workforce development, health and wellness and community safety programs. Oasis Marinas currently serves as the marina management partner for Living Classrooms Foundation marinas in Baltimore and at The Yards in Washington DC.

“I’m excited to support the mission with Living Classrooms, an organization that actively enriches the region’s educational and cultural landscape,” said Kenneth Svendsen. “As a board member, I pledge to create a lasting positive impact– that extends beyond our marinas–by serving as a gateway to providing workforce opportunities to participants; we have already started on this initiative by hiring amazing Living Classrooms graduates to work at our marinas, and this is just the beginning!”

Svendsen’s past philanthropic extracurriculars, which include his experiences as a global executive advisor, career coach and board member for multiple nonprofits, make him an ideal candidate to support Living Classrooms Foundation’s mission.

This encompasses marina management, operations, service, maintenance, food & beverage and more.
