  1. Ana

    Hi there! My name is Ana Quintanilla, I am a previous member of youth together! I was a student at Fremont High school years 04-08 and I worked very closely with Victor who was the main mentor who manned the program at the school. Youth Together was such a great experience for me, it turned my life around and gave me insight I could not have obtained elsewhere! I was wondering is there anyway to become involved again? And to possibly share with younger minds what was shared with me? I would love to hear back from you guys.

  2. Good Afternoon Ana. Thank you for your comment. We really appreciate it. Please give us a call at 510-645-9209 so we can discuss options for staying in contact with you. We would love to stay in contact with as many former YT Youth as possible. I hope this reaches you well.

    Good Morning, I am the Family Resource Center Coordinator for Bret Harte Middle School.

    As you realize, getting students to school is a major challenge in the city of Oakland.
    This is where your might come into play. We currently have several students who are unable to attend school because 1) the parents can’t afford a student bus pass 2) it is a hardship for them to purchase them.
    Would your organization be willing or able to donate bus passes to deserving students?
    pls let me know..thank you for any assistance you can be of.

    Hello Again Youth Together!

    I was in the graduating class of 2007 at Castlemont High School and worked closely with Adefela Thomas. The program really shaped my values and priority in life and will love to get involved once again when ever the time allows me to do so. Will love to hear back from you guy!

    I was a member of YT from 2004-2007, and initially I enrolled when Fela Thomas was the organizer at Castlemont, and then I transferred to Skyline. This program helped me in so many ways with my independence, self-confidence, and influenced positive changes in my life.

  7. Congratulations on receiving funding for the next three years. Big win!

    I wonder if you have any open part-time positions?

    I included my LinkedIn page above. I’m currently spend much of my time at the Impact Hub in Oakland and am enrolled in the Uptima Business Bootcamp accelerator program to launch a pay-it-forward website platform. If there’s a way that I could help out, please let me know!

    Hi There,

    I was a member of Youth Together (YT) from 1997-2002. It was one of the best memories I have of my youth years. This organization has really taught me to speak up and that my voice is powerful. Other memories I hold onto are the summer ethnic studies, the student rallies, city council meetings, and BBQ. I think I still even recognize some faces.

    Today, I’m so glad that this program is still around. I’d like to stay in touch.
