How We Work
To help improve outcomes for children and youth in the City of Oakland, the Youth Ventures JPA gathers leaders of partner and member agencies – city, county, school districts, and community-based organizations – to ensure that promising initiatives with multiple partners have the shared vision and goals, coordination, resources, and policy environments they need to achieve and increase their impact.
Our Priority Action Areas
The Youth Ventures JPA focuses its efforts on five action areas to achieve the greatest impact:
- Wealth (earnings and savings)
In each of these areas, the JPA Board identifies opportunities to leverage our unique access to resources, policy, communications channels, and more. Our emerging priority projects under these five areas for the next three years are described below.
