Celebrating a Decade of Doing What We LOVE

OAKLAND, CA – 18 May, 2017 – Our Youth Matter (OYM) has provided services, resources, and youth-oriented events in the Oakland community for 10 years with an all-volunteer director and staff. This year they are “Celebrating a Decade of Doing What We LOVE” with an event on May 20, 2017, at Tertulia Coffee and Art Galley from 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm. The event is by invitation only due to limited of space.

OYM demonstrates love to youth through a broad range of year-round activities and events such as an annual Easter Egg Hunt, Back to School Bash that provides backpacks and age appropriate school supplies, Thanksgiving in the Park, a holiday Toy Giveaway and Adopt-A-Family program.  OYM events started with about 50 recipients now draws in 600-700 people.

OYM is committed to giving youth their own voice through youth guided and facilitated workshops, seminars, and entrepreneurship presentations.

OYM  recognizes that parent involvement is crucial to positive development in youth and adolescents, therefore, the importance of reaching family needs has been met through Project Touchtone where items from your hands are placed in the hands of those in need.  Donations of food items, hygiene products, bedding, and clothing have help students in several Oakland Public schools.

You heard the phrase “It takes a village to raise a child”? OYM strengthens their village through partnerships with Oakland Public Schools, Oakland Park & Recreation, Civic and Faith-Based Organizations. Together we can strengthen our village to consist of people who love beyond mistakes and care beyond distance.
