Youth Together operates at four high schools in the East Bay: Castlemont, Fremont and Skyline high schools in Oakland and Richmond High school in Richmond. Two site organizers conduct workshops at each site during the year, lead campaign related school wide events as well as recruitment students to partake in trainings, retreats and actions. Youth Together’s Political Education and Propaganda Coordinator trains five Lead Student Organizers from each site to facilitate youth led workshops and actions at their sites related to the campaign. Each site has a core team of 15-30 students who participate in workshops and school wide activities.
Castlemont Community of Small Schools was divided into three small schools in 2004:
- Castlemont Leadership Preparatory
- Castlemont Business and Information Technology School
- East Oakland School of the Arts.
Combined these three small schools serve over 1,200 students.
Formerly Fremont Senior High School, the campus of the Fremont Federation of High Schools hosts four Small Autonomous High Schools in the Fruitvale neighborhood of Oakland, California.

Combined these four small schools serve over 1,400 students.
