VOLUNTEER (Current Employee) – Oakland, CA – April 11, 2018
Working at Youth Uprising was a memorable experience I will never forget. It showed me different aspects of myself that I never noticed, I learned patience and more about my culture. There were also programs that helped the community. From community service to counsel meetings. While the workers themselves were comfortable and fun to be around, they put the safety of myself and others as top priority.
It was a fun way to stay busy when i was a teenager

Working directly with the youth in Oakland’s Urban community is very rewarding. Assisting youth with setting and acheiving their goals, preparing them for a successful life is what I love about this job.
Internship (Former Employee) – Oakland, CA – January 8, 2018
Diverse network of people, safe space for youth, clean facilities. Respect is stressed, excellent community core values, hands on training, and many opportunities to branch off into a world all your own.
Career Coach/Academic Advisor (Former Employee) – Oakland, CA – December 27, 2017
Something is not right about this place. The head director of this place is using the grants for personal use. Seem like when people start asking questions, they get fired even if they are doing really well with the Youth.
Community Landscaper (Former Employee) – Oakland, CA – July 30, 2017
I went out with around 5 or 6 guys including the supervisor to do mainly yard-work and gardening. Environment was extremely relaxed and fun while still maintaining a hardworking ethic. Supervisor was out with us working which is a HUGE deal and would even buy us all lunch on a job well done. Can make friends easily. great place for youth to start out.
Great management, co workers. Never too stressful or too easy
Intern (Former Employee) – Oakland, CA – March 11, 2016
Youth Uprising is great because when I first came to Youth Uprising I didn't know was going to work here. When they ask me to work with them I was shock because I never herd someone ask me to work for them. When I started I got to meet my co-workers and had a good relationship with them.
Great company for youth to get a better chance in life with or without a high school diploma
Youth Mentor (Former Employee) – Oakland, CA – March 9, 2016
Awesome days at work, learning different types of things everyday. Management is great because its built from the ground up self made. My co-workers were just a great as me. The hardest part about the job is actually getting the youth to participate in all activites, but the most enjoyable part is knowing that I made an impact on a childs life that day.

Youth Uprising is a great place to go for youth to go get things done. Youth Uprising provides a lot of things from education to job trainings. Its a good way for youth to get away and get jobs to provide for them or their family.
