Oakland Public School Volunteer: Project Feedback
Thank you to our volunteers for December 2021 support of CCPA senior capstone projects in Oakland. (Read more)
Call for Volunteers! The goal is to provide high school seniors with feedback on their capstone projects (apps/websites) on Wednesday, December 15th, 2021, 4:30pm – 6pm at CCPA in East Oakland. Sign up here to volunteer!
Students will be sharing preliminary ideas around the websites and apps that they are building for their senior capstone project, and gathering feedback.
Volunteers will listen and provide feedback to students on how to improve their senior projects, which are due in May. When people from industry come in, it raises the stakes and feels more impactful for the students. The more, the merrier!

This year so far, Girl Geek X community volunteered with back-to-school prep and participated in a career panel.
Girl Geek X adopted Coliseum College Prep Academy (details) for the ’21-’22 school year to provide valuable experiences for the Girl Geek X volunteers to engage with the local school community in Oakland, CA.
CCPA has the highest college-going rate in the district despite being located in one of Oakland’s highest poverty neighborhoods.
