Our Vision

We as a community will ensure every child in Oakland graduates high school with the expectations, resources, and skills to complete college and be successful in the career of his or her choice.

Our Opportunity

Through partnerships with the Oakland Unified School District, the East Bay College Fund, and scores of other organizations, initiatives, supporters, and champions, we have the opportunity to transform our city.

Brilliant Baby

Currently, there are approximately 2,200 babies born into poverty in Oakland each year. Our vision is to serve every baby born into poverty in the next decade

Kindergarten to College

There are approximately 5,000 students who start Kindergarten in Oakland Public schools each year. Our vision is to serve all 5,000 through Kindergarten to College by 2020.


Future Centers

There are approximately 24,000 middle & high school students in Oakland Public Schools.  Our vision is for all middle and high school students to have access to personalized support to set them on a path to college & career success.

College Scholarship & Completion

Currently, fewer than 500 Oakland public school 12th graders graduate a 2 or 4-year college within 6 years of high school graduation each year. Our vision is to dramatically increase the number of college graduates from Oakland public schools by 2025.
