Preserving Art & Music Education in Public Schools

"Students who can use art and music to think big, those are the global changers to me"- Jahi
51Oakland is a non-profit charitable organization whose mission is to inspire Student learning, creativity, hard work, and self-esteem by strengthening the role of Music and Arts Education in Oakland Public Schools. Partnering with Yoshi’s Jazz Club, 51Oakland provides Oakland Public School students with access to programs, resources, supplies, instruction, mentoring and training in Music and the Arts. Their hope is that 51Oakland’s commitment to supporting educational Music and Arts programs will foster a community that nurtures growth, creativity, and self-expression for youth, and will help instill core values in program participants – strong work ethic, discipline, teamwork, and self-actualization.
