Hope for Children Now Gala
Thank you for making our Hope for Children Now Gala a success!
Your Opportunity to Serve
One on one time with struggling students two hours a week will help a child reach their potential. A short amount of time can make a big impact.
Breaking the Cycle of Poverty
Our programs help close the achievement gap by providing literacy skills, science learning experiences, and career mentoring and internships.
Make a Difference
60% of Oakland 3rd Graders read below grade-level average. For them, it’s more than just learning to read. It’s about reading to learn.
One-on-one teaching helps struggling students learn math concepts.
California schools rank 46th in science scores nationwide. Hands-on learning experiences increase a student’s passion for science, engineering and math.
Students often go hungry over the weekend, and are unprepared to learn on Monday morning. Health4Kids provides a bag of nourishing food and recipes for children to take home from school every Friday.
In 2014 nearly one-third of Oakland public school libraries were closed. Library assistants help keep libraries open and provide the resources for students to become life-long learners.
