Network of Service Providers.
Do you represent a non-profit that is currently working or planning to work with the youth of Oakland? Or are you a local business that wants to provide job opportunities and invaluable work experience to the youth of Oakland? We are developing a centralized network of excellent, existing service providers and businesses with the youth of Oakland at the center.
Become a Catalyst Volunteer.
Volunteers are the life blood of our organization, and we are so grateful
for your interest. If you would like to learn more about becoming a volunteer for Catalyst Youth Network, we would love to meet you and
see where you would be a good fit. We invest in our volunteers' development and provide resources for training our volunteers to
be well equipped for the work of youth development.
Become an ADVOCATE PARTNER.
Our "Advocate Partners" give monthly to invest in the youth of Oakland. They enable us to help students navigate their journey from High School to College or Career, by connecting them with well trained mentors that give them the tools, resources, and ongoing support they need to reach their full potential.
