Our volunteer opportunity at the community mobile food pantry distribution focuses on assisting with the organization, preparation, and distribution of both fresh produce and dry goods to individuals and families in need. Volunteers will engage in tasks such as:

  • Sorting and Packing: Organizing fresh produce and dry goods into distribution packages, ensuring items are fresh and appropriately portioned.
  • Setup: Arranging distribution areas to facilitate an efficient and smooth distribution process.
  • Distribution: Handing out food packages to clients, ensuring each family receives the correct amount and type of food.
  • Client Interaction: Checking in clients, answering their questions, and providing a welcoming and supportive environment.
  • Quality Control: Monitoring the freshness of produce and ensuring that dry goods are within their use-by dates.

This role is essential for ensuring that nutritious food reaches those in need. Volunteers should be ready to work collaboratively, handle light to moderate lifting, and interact with community members with respect and compassion. We are actively recruiting for and in high need of Cantonese and Spanish speaking volunteers.

Mission Statement

The Community School for Creative Education (CSCE) designers are a cross-cultural team of educators, community leaders, youth developers, and parents committed to bringing excellence and equity in public school education to the students and families of San Antonio/East Oakland. Our initiative draws upon decades of experience in experiential education, project-based learning, multicultural education, Waldorf education and environmental education.

Description

What will the school be like?

This mold-breaking charter school will integrate the educational visions of local families, best practices in equitable education, and adapted Waldorf practice. The result will be a community-responsive, culturally-relevant learning environment that is grounded in developmentally-appropriate, arts-rich, and project-based methods. We will help each child succeed academically, meeting or exceeding California State standards, while encouraging a balanced expression of each child's unique talents and leadership abilities. Instruction will interweave the intellectual, emotional, cultural, and practical facets of human development while fostering in students a deep and imaginative love of learning and a strong sense of self and community.

Who will the school serve?

The CSCE intends to primarily serve the ethnically, culturally and socio-economically diverse communities of East Oakland and surrounding neighborhoods. We are hoping to locate the school in Oakland's vibrant Fruitvale/San Antonio community. Specifically, CSCE aims to enroll any student -- gifted and talented, special education, high achieving, at-risk, English Language Learners or "average" -- who is better served by a small, arts-infused learning environment that emphasizes rigorous, authentic, experiential, participatory, culturally-relevant, and project-based education. It is possible that the school will also admit a small percentage of students from other parts of Oakland.

What grades will the school offer?

CSCE aims to serve pre-kindergarten through eighth grade (pre-K - 8th) though we will start as a K-3rd school. We also hope to partner with one or more mission-aligned neighborhood high schools, thereby offering a complete K-12 pathway within walking distance from home for the families of the community.
