Collaborating with Oakland Community Organizations to Ignite Social Change

Oakland has always been an epicenter for social change in the US and those roots are reflected in Citizen Schools apprenticeships. We've partnered with community organizations who, among many things, use near peer mentoring, student-led discussion, and explorations of Oakland neighborhoods and cultural sites to build civic-minded leaders within our student body - and address relevant social issues such as violence prevention, discrimination and injustice.
