Geographic areas served: Richmond, Berkeley, and Oakland, California

Programs: We provide disadvantaged East Bay young people with a full-time summer program that includes legal and life skills instruction on the UC Berkeley campus, instruction in conflict resolution and communication skills, and paid, full-time professional internships. Throughout the year, we provide one-on-one mentoring and career and educational support activities to young people who have previously completed our summer program.

Mission:

Our mission is to inspire and help prepare disadvantaged young people to:

 

  • Succeed in higher education
  • Achieve productive, fulfilling careers and lives
  • Understand our system of government and law, and
    Participate meaningfully in community life
Results:
Hundreds of youth have completed our full-time, summer program of paid internships, academic enrichment, and life skills and career development activities.  We have also provided follow-up educational mentoring to these young people. 

100% of our program participants have graduated from high school, and 90% have pursued higher education.

Some remarks by program graduates:

“This program changed my life!”

“Because of this program, I realize I am someone.”

“This program showed me how, if I put my mind, body, and soul into something, I can get anything accomplished.”
