Back to School Clean-Up Days (August 7 – 9, 2019)
Teachers have precious little time to prepare their classrooms before the first day of school in August. Pitch in to prep rooms and hallways so students come back to a clean and orderly space for learning! This opportunity takes place in the three days before the first day of school every year. Check out our photo story from last year.
To celebrate diversity in literature and encourage a love of books, we host three Read-Ins every year. Hundreds of volunteers visiting schools across Oakland schools to read aloud with kids. Visit www.oaklandedfund.org/read to sign up for our next Read-In.
- Latinx Read-In, September 30 – October 4, 2019
- African American Read-In, February 3 – 7, 2020
- Asian Pacific American Read-In, May 11 – 15, 2020
- LGBTQ+ Read-In, TBD
Computer Science Education Week (December 9 – 13, 2019)
Along with OUSD and other partners, we help Oakland kids explore new opportunities in tech during Computer Science Education Week. We invite you to share your experience in the tech industry with students by visiting a school as a guest speaker, presenting a case study, or giving a demonstration. Check out our recap of last year’s events to get a better idea of the options.
