PROVIDING YOUTH WITH TOOLS FOR SCHOOL
A FEW WORDS ABOUT THE BACK TO SCHOOL BASH
The 10th Annual Back to School Bash is a yearly outreach event of Our Youth Matter, Inc. It’s held outdoors the 3rd Saturday of August where backpacks filled with age-appropriate school supplies are given to preschool to high school students on a first come, first serve bases. This year we have a carnival theme with games, concession stand, food, crafts, entertainment, and more. STUDENT MUST BE PRESENT.
We have partnered up with Rainbow Recreation Center at 5800 International Blvd. in Oakland to give out 500 backpacks, 500 hygiene kits and 500 books.
Since 2008, Our Youth Matter has given out over 1900 backpacks to under-represented youth. Our goal is to PROVIDE YOUTH WITH TOOLS FOR SCHOOL to help them start the school year right. The mission of OYM is to create and enhance resources for youth through educational preparation, leadership development, and community involvement. OUR YOUTH MATTER and YOUR HELP MATTERS TOO!!
