Quaker Voluntary Service is delighted to welcome our newest staff member to the team as the incoming Philadelphia Coordinator- Oskar Castro will be joining us beginning in August! We are incredibly excited for the experience, ideas, and gifts that you bring to the QVS community- welcome Oskar!

Oskar Pierre Castro is an artist/analyst/non-violent activist/father & husband with over twenty years of service in the non-profit sector working on youth development, career development, peace activism, and labor rights. Oskar is a 1992 graduate of Rowan University where he majored in Law & Justice. The human rights part of the curriculum stimulated his belief in working for social justice when it is absent. Oskar’s non-profit experiences include things like leading a national office program at the American Friends Service Committee and helping talented youth-of-color navigate corporate America with INROADS. Originally from South Jersey, Oskar moved to Philadelphia in 1994, and as a multi-faceted artist there he employs music, poetry, and graphic art to communicate his ideas about the world creatively. A member of Central Philadelphia Monthly Meeting, Oskar is married to a like minded soul, has two children, the best dog ever, and a cat.
