Youth & Education Committee's New Project


This year, the Youth and Education Committee will be undertaking support of a new Oakland Unified School District program for pre-kindergarteners, called Transitional Kindergarten, which is the first new grade level since the 1870s. This will be a key educational program to get kids started learning early, which is crucial to later success.
