Our mission is to improve the future of high school youth by increasing their success in high school today.
Our academic mentors work in Oakland's high school classrooms to support students' learning, help increase their proficiency and keep them on the road to graduation.
Don't let the door shut on these students. Join us today!
"It was a wonderful experience for me being a mentor through Oakland Serves. I got to know and support one student who was sincerely doing his best to succeed, and I got to see his skills, awareness, and thoughtfulness grow through his interactions with his teachers and with me. Getting to know him personally and share what I had to offer was a great gift for me."
"It has been a pleasure to partner with Oakland Serves for a second year. The common value Oakland High and Oakland Serves has is the importance of caring and supportive relationships. Oakland Serve has provided a group of mentors to consistently connect with our students, meet them where they are at, and provides a journey to support students socially, emotionally, and academically."
