Our goal is to support students at Coliseum College Prep Academy in Oakland, California serving grades 6-12 with a computer science pathway, by providing access to volunteers and role models from the professional community for students. We partnered with Oakland Education Fund, a nonprofit coordinating volunteer activities with public schools in Oakland.

CCPA has the highest college-going rate in the district despite being located in one of Oakland’s highest poverty neighborhoods.
