  • Mayor Jean Quan’s 100 BlockInitiativeJob Fairs Spring 2012
  • 2Every year the City of Oakland hires youth during the summer, however, after speaking with many youngpeople who live in the 100 blocks, we found that they were unaware of the opportunities that the City ofOakland and other agencies offered for summer employment.We partnered with the Oakland Housing Authority, Oakland Community Organizations, NeighborhoodServices Division, Messengers4Change, East Oakland Youth Development Center, members of the faithcommunity, the Oakland Unified School District, and Youth Employment Partnership to ensure that theyouth living in the parts of the City with the highest concentrations of shootings and homicides had accessto these resources. Fairs were held at at McClymonds High School on Wednesday, February29th, Lockwood Gardens on Thursday, March 1st, and Willie Wilkins Park on Saturday, March 3rd. Morethan 500 young people handed in applications, with help from volunteers and City staff. Our success canlargely be attributed to the collaboration with City agencies and community partners. We learned a lot andwill be back in April to continue the work.
