There is an education crisis affecting our city’s most vulnerable children.
For many of the children, youth, and families in our programs, the COVID-19 pandemic has led to a catastrophic disruption to normal routines of life. Our local schools have struggled to provide quality distance learning, exposing the digital divide for how it’s been maintaining the achievement gap for some of our most vulnerable children and youth. Now more than ever, we need to nurture and equip promising children to rise to their God-given potential.

60% of Oakland 3rd Graders read below grade-level average. For them, it’s more than just learning to read. It’s about reading to learn.
Students often go hungry over the weekend, and are unprepared to learn on Monday morning. Health4Kids provides a bag of nourishing food and recipes for children to take home from school every Friday.

"We appreciate our relationship with Children Rising. Our leaders were impressed and inspired by the partnership and commitment to the community in the Bay Area. Your dialogue and contributions left our US leadership team with a lot of impressive ideas to consider as the Firm continues to look for ways to increase the effect of PwC’s Earn Your Future (financial literacy program) across the country."Jennifer L.
