The Youth Hub Fellowship Program is a year-long social entrepreneurship training and co-working program which includes:
o 4 months of social enterprise training to develop a business model strategy
o Professional mentorship and access to co-working space and office amenities
o The May 16 pitch event

Youth Impact Hub Oakland is a multi-sector collaboration between Impact Hub Oakland & United Roots designed to scale internationally at more than 90 global Impact Hub sites. The Fellowship stems from over 30 years of collective youth development experience, which informs our belief that youth, especially those most impacted by social inequity, are best positioned to develop meaningful and lasting solutions to the challenges facing their communities.

The 100+ young people in Oakland who have completed the program are the living testimony to her powerful vision and unyielding belief in the creativity and innovation of young people.Back to all Events
