Empowering Oakland’s Youth: Celebrating CareerBridge’s New Chapter!

Thank you for visiting CareerBridge. In June 2024, CareerBridge transitioned to Catalyst Youth Network, one of our partners that is solely focused on the development of high school youth. This transition ensures continuity in offering Oakland youth transformative experiences, including classroom preparation, personalized mentorship, paid internships, and crucial post-internship support. At the same time, it allows Children Rising to focus entirely on interventional literacy and math tutoring for second and third-grade children who desperately need this support.

This transition is not only a great step forward for CareerBridge but also an incredible opportunity for Children Rising. With CareerBridge now in the capable hands of Catalyst Youth Network, we can focus even more energy on working upstream, providing interventional academic support at the elementary school level.

Thank you for believing in the potential of our kids and for your continued partnership in this journey of empowerment.
