    Mission: 

     

    As CHEA, our job is to understand, dismantle, and transform the social determinants that contribute to health inequities in our community:

    • Housing

    • Food

    • Money

    • Social Environment/Relationships

    • Education

    • Safety

    CHEA students and educators understand that a quality education is one of the most important tools our students have to take back East Oakland from the grips of gentrification and build a community where everyone can reach their full health potential.

     

    The Castlemont Health Equity Academy (CHEA) activates students as agents of change by: 

    • Developing knowledge of self, including strengths, interests, and leadership;
    • Deepening our understanding of the Social Determinants of Health and health outcomes;
    • Supporting opportunities to practice skills and apply knowledge through work-based learning and action research.
