Come to our 10 Year Anniversary Benefit to help us raise $2,000 to fund the youth racial justice agenda!

What is the Youth Action Team?
The Youth Action Team is an after school program of BAY-Peace that aims to develop the leadership of youth through the arts, political education and community organizing. Youth Organizers will be trained to facilitate interactive workshops, organize community events or actions, and use arts based techniques to engage community members in conversations about the ways that racism and violence is impacting Oakland youth. They will learn about racial justice and the violence that is perpetrated by the systems that impact them in order to create change in the criminal justice and education systems locally and across the state. Youth Organizers will also have the opportunity participate in our annual Santa Cruz retreat, international days of action, National Leadership Conferences, House Parties, Performances or showcases and collaborations with other Oakland Youth Organizers.
When is it?
Program starts on October 4, 2017 and ends on May 30, 2018.
The Youth Action Team will meet every Wednesday from 3:00 - 5:30.
Where is it?
The program will take place primarily at the BAY-Peace office in Downtown Oakland at 610 16th St #322. On occasion, there will also be activities at other locations.
Is it paid? Can I receive school credit?
Yes! Youth Organizers in the Youth Action Team will receive either a monthly stipend or academic credit upon completion of the program. There are also additional paid opportunities throughout the year for all Youth Organizers.
