Juma Oakland provides educational support, employment, and financial capability to low-income high school and college youth. Juma partners with schools like Castlemont High School, Oakland Technical High School, Skyline High School, Oakland High School, and Fremont High School to help recruit youth into our program.
We work with youth whose GPA’s are between 2.0-3.0. After high school graduation, we continue to support youth in their first two years of college. In 2015, 100% of Juma youth graduated from high school and 91% enrolled in post-secondary education.
Juma partners with food service and hospitality company, Spectra, to employ 60 youth at the Oakland Coliseum who in 2015, worked over 1,200 shifts, earned $54,000 in wages, and saved $10,000 for college through our matched savings program –all while developing career skills and receiving financial education.
