About Oakland Promise:
Oakland Promise’s (“OP”) mission is to engage the Oakland community to advance equity and economic mobility through cradle-to-career achievement. OP is available to young learners (from newborns to college students) and their families who reside in Oakland. We offer every child the financial resources, educational programming, mentorship, and supportive community to help them and their families seek out and thrive in higher education and the career of their choosing. OP achieves its work through four key programs: Brilliant Baby, Kindergarten to College, College Access, and College Completion.
Oakland Promise Kindergarten to College (K2C) helps K through 5th graders in Oakland think of themselves as college career-bound individuals. We provide scholarships, technical support and incentives to families who open a family-owned college savings account. Additionally, we provide program support to build a college- and career-going identity within students, which includes college visits, family and student workshops, scholarship celebrations, and more.
Oakland Promise is a place-based organization, necessitating all team members to be available in-person at our office, located at 484 9th Street, Oakland, California 94607. Our staff currently follows a hybrid schedule, spending at least three days collaborating either in the office or schools/community and two days working remotely. As a community organization, we prioritize doing what is best for our community work, and as such the requirement to be available for a full in-person work week may be mandated at any time.
