Montclarions Creating Youth Mentoring Program

When it comes to Oakland kids, it seems like volunteer efforts make all the difference.  There are so many ways to help, whether at the local schools, libraries or through non-profit groups.

The Montclair Community Action Group (MCAG) recently surveyed their volunteers, and there was plenty of interest in mentoring youth.  So now it’s time to figure out practical ways…to get to work.  Neighbors are invited to MCAG’s brainstorming session this Tuesday evening, where they will help define and create a special youth mentoring program.

Date: Tuesday, November 16th
Time: 7:00pm ~ 9:00pm
Where: Montclair Women’s Club – 1650 Mountain Blvd.

“We are the ones we’ve been waiting for,” said community organizer Barack Obama in a recent video from Oakland Mayor-Elect Jean Quan.  Who are we to argue with that point?
