Youth UpRising

The mission of Youth UpRising is to transform East Oakland into a healthy and economically robust community by developing the leadership of youth and young adults and improving the systems that impact them.

We run two social enterprises out of Youth UpRising, YU Green, a full service landscaping company and Corners Cafe, an on site cafe serving breakfast and lunch all day as well as offering catering to events large and small. Our enterprises allow us to employee youth in East Oakland who have multiple barriers to employment and have them go through a training program that prepares them for their next step into their career. We focus on professional and personal development as well as creating a sense of leadership and ownership.

Corners Cafe is a member of the Catalyst Kitchens network.
