Oakland Public School Volunteer: Girl Geek X CCPA Senior Expo – CANCELED
CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS: Senior project presentations will take place Friday, May 5th, 2023 from 9:30am to 10:30am at CCPA in East Oakland.
These projects are action research projects that CCPA seniors have been working on all year. Students have internships at a community-oriented organization working on subjects like hunger and food distribution, justice for undocumented immigrant youth, racism in technological algorithms, burnout in school staff, and a lot of very interesting projects!
This partnership is facilitated by Oakland Public Education Fund, a non-profit connecting groups with schools to make a positive impact on school culture and student achievement. Learn more about the Girl Geek X Oakland Education Fund partnership, providing valuable experiences for the Girl Geek X volunteers to engage and support with a local school.
CCPA has the highest college-going rate in the district despite being located in one of Oakland’s highest poverty neighborhoods.
