Congratulations, Trent Leung. Your presentation was awesome. It addressed social and environmental issues within the community. Trent is our 2022 summer intern. Trent is our sixth summer intern from College Prep’s STOak (Social Transformations Oakland) Program,
from CPS STOak cohort. Thank you to Charles Eddy(Justice Reform Coalition Coordinator) and Sawan Garde(a previous intern) for supporting Tent.

🗣 STOak is a yearlong course that begins in the spring semester with a deep-dive into understanding Oakland’s past and present, with an emphasis on social movements. STOak is hands-on, with a mix of structured course work, field trips, group discussions, and independent research. Topics include social change through community-based research, systems thinking, leadership strategies, non-profit organizational structures, and local government. Students research the social, political, and economic landscape of their focus topic while learning the professional conduct they will practice in their summer internships at community-based organizations.
