The Unity Council’s mission is to promote social equity and improve quality of life by building vibrant communities where everyone can work, learn, and thrive. We envision a joyful, united, and engaged community where people have the power to shape their lives.
Our Youth Programs serves both in school and out of school youth year round. The Latino Men & Boys (LMB) and the Latina Mentoring & Achievement (LMA) program are school-based, culturally-rooted programs located in selected schools in the Oakland Unified School District. LMA is the expansion of the successful Latino Men and Boys (LMB) program, nationally recognized by The Obama Foundation.
Our Youth Career Services offers young adults ages 16 to 24 who want help with job search, career exploration, resume and cover letter writing, and other career-related services. Regardless of your job history or education level, we have services that can help you achieve your career goals.
Finally, our Summer Earn and Learn 10-week program is sponsored by The City of Oakland’s Summer Youth Employment Program to provide Oakland youth, ages 16-21, opportunities to earn money, gain meaningful work experience and improve their job-readiness skills
