ORGANIZATION: Children Rising


Children Rising seeks committed and caring adults to mentor high school students from June 1 to July 31 as they navigate their internships. Our program, CareerBridge, is designed to build relationships and bridge the opportunity gap for under-served youth through one-on-one mentoring, summer internships, and business workshops.

Be a mentor
Just one hour per week can help a young adult prepare for their crucial final years of high school. Be a positive role model for ambitious, determined youth by listening to them, helping them make positive choices, and providing them with hope and a pathway to a promising career. We provide the training. You provide the wisdom.

Join us for mentor training, which will take place online on May 17 (10a-12p) or May 18 (2p-4p) . Click the "I Want to Help" button to let us know you’re interested and we’ll get you started with the volunteer application and onboarding!

About Children Rising


2633 Telegraph Ave., 412, Oakland, CA 94612, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to nurture and equip vulnerable children to rise above the challenges created by generations of poverty, violence and educational inequity.


Children Rising is an Oakland education non-profit founded in 2001. Our Community Engagement Model is poised to make a generational impact in our city. We are educating and energizing the broader community; recruiting, training, and supporting an array of highly skilled and experienced tutors and mentors; developing key strategic partnerships with schools and community partners; and empowering thousands of vulnerable children and youth to rise above the challenges they face. Our vision is for every struggling child to be reached by a caring member of the community at a critical time in their life in order to nurture hope, the courage to dream, and the opportunity to thrive. We empower children and youth attending public schools most affected by poverty, violence and educational inequity by raising awareness and rallying community support for their needs; and by galvanizing and guiding volunteers to teach, mentor, and nourish the children so they may develop academic and life skills to realize their God-given potential.
