There are many opportunities to help a struggling student reach their potential. Children Rising makes it simple.
Children Rising succeeds because individual volunteers, congregations, community based organizations, corporations and local businesses share their time with at-promise youth in under-resourced schools. We offer an array of practical entry points for people and groups to make meaningful connections with the next generation.
I want to Learn About Volunteer
A small investment in our community reaps great rewards.
When schools have adequate resources, teachers can teach, and students can learn. But in many Oakland public schools, key programs such as library services, STEM labs, and career development are dropped due to lack of funding. We know that schools just miles apart face a world of difference in opportunity. Together, our gifts can help close the achievement gap in under-resourced schools.
I want to Make Donations
“We’ve been given these gifts, time, talent and resources, and there just seemed to be an opportunity to reach out and have an impact on elementary school students, helping them grow confidence in their math and reading skills, and making a good connection with them. We’ve been blessed.”
