Elevate Oakland's Community Summit
December 15, 2013
Educators, students, community and civic leaders, families and music lovers of all ages came together to listen, learn, share and celebrate the creative potential of Oakland youth at Elevate Oakland's Community Summit at Yoshi's, Oakland (Jack London Square).
The full-house event - which featured appearances by student musicians and spoken word performers from across the Oakland Unified School District, was hosted by 51Oakland and The Elevate Hope Foundation, and marked the official beginning of their new joint venture - "ELEVATE OAKLAND".
Drawing on the combined resources of two established non-profit organizations with similar missions, Elevate Oakland promises to bring even more music and arts opportunities to the youth of Oakland. The tremendous positivity & goodwill generated by the event foretells of great things to come!
