Academics & Literacy Committee

Be part of We Will Not Be Indifferent 

Let’s take action together! Be part of our efforts to support Oakland youth and demonstrate that We Will Not Be Indifferent to the needs of our community’s future leaders. This Committee will play an integral role in our efforts to bolster youth success and empowerment through Academics & Literacy. Targeted literacy intervention is being piloted at three of our sites this year. Our goal is to expand intervention to all of our sites as well as increase literacy development across all of our after-school project groups through professional development of staff on high yield learning activities.
