OUSD Students


    Our mission is to dramatically improve academic and life outcomes for Latina and Latino students in Oakland. We address historical trauma and institutional, interpersonal, and internalized oppression to activate personal and community journeys of healing, empowerment and self determination. Together, with students, families, elders, staff, and community, we interrupt and eliminate inequitable practices and examine our own biases. Together, we support Latino/a students to discover and cultivate their own unique gifts, talents, and interests to contribute towards a thriving Oakland and global community.
