This is why our curriculum "reading with relevance" is so important. It gets kids (especially kids of color) reading and making meaning of high interest books. #readingispower #readwithme ... See MoreSee Less
We just got a few more tickets generously donated for the prom tomorrow night for teachers/educators/community activist folks! I know it is last minute but if you want to come and party with us send a PM and I will add you and a date to the guest list. #OaklandAdultProm ... See MoreSee Less
Adult Prom - Party With A Purpose
May 20, 2017, 8:00pm - May 21, 2017, 12:00am
Step Out to a Great Party and Step Up for Oakland Youth
We do everything our own way in Oakland. We stand up for what we believe in, we speak out when we see injustice…. and we really know how to throw a party! The Adult Prom is about stepping up to show that Oakland hella loves its kids, and stepping out in style to dance and drink the night away in support of a great cause.
Come dressed to impress and we’ll take care of the rest: the illustrious DJ Francois will be spinning the best old school tunes to get you in a Prom state of mind, we’ll be popping bottles of Korbel all night long, and this time, the party punch is already spiked!
Re-take that corny Prom Photo, pin on a classic corsage or boutonniere, and watch Prom Royalty receive their crowns.
Plus, all the funds raised at the Adult Prom will support culturally responsive reading experiences for kids in your community. Because you know, that’s the Oakland way—we party with purpose! #ReadingisPower
Re-live or re-set your prom night experience—this time, older, wiser, and WAY more fabulous! (We promise to put your old high school Prom to shame!)
Special thanks to Downtown Subaru of Oakland for serving as our generous Pearls & Platinum sponsor for the evening!
