Oakland Leaf cultivates community transformation through creative education
for youth and families.
Our goal is simple, give our
students and their parents the access to resources they need to become agents of positive
change in their community.
Our vision: Oakland Leaf emboldens youth and families to be creative
leaders who actualize a more
loving, just, and vibrant Oakland.
Oakland Leaf is excited to be involved with Charlie Hallowell’s newest project, ‘Sunday Suppers’ – this series of gatherings will celebrate and support community organizations located in the East Bay. The goal of ‘Sunday Suppers’ is to raise money each month for a different East Bay organization working on behalf of the community, and we are one of them!
