ACES Foundation Oakland Engaged


underserved youth to participate in politics, engage their communities, and

become public administrators that will transform their communities through public policy!

By leveraging technology and human resources, we empower urban youth to become

active participants in their communities by training them in leadership, community organizing,

strategic communication, policy research and writing, legislative analytics, voter registration, and parliamentary procedure.




Youth civic participation is at an all-time low, particularly within areas, which the demographic profile consists of, low-income-people-of-color

(Oakland, CA). In the most recent midterm elections (2014), only 17% of the voting eligible population (VEP) between 18 and 30 years old

participated with only 3-4% of participants being residents of low-income communities of color; this trend will continue to be an impediment

to access and opportunity. In other words, the socio-economic inequality gap will continue to widen and as a result, there will be fewer

opportunities for those who need them most.
