Five years ago today we launched the Oakland Promise to send more kids from #Oakland to-and-thru college with resources, support, and Mentors. Here’s how we’re doing so far:
We’ve awarded over 1,800 high school seniors with 2-4 year scholarships. Opened 800+ College Savings Accounts, and 610 family-owned accounts for our Brilliant Babies and K2C programs respectively. Given 20,000 elementary school students Early College Scholarship Funds.
Now, we need to do more. We’re calling on Bay Area residents to serve as Mentors to our next generation of Oakland Scholars. If you’d like to join a community movement that elevates our youth, please visit https://tfaforms.com/4762495 today!
