As many of you know, I've been working with Game Theory Academy for several years now specializing in Treasure Hunts and teaching students a range of lifeskills. This past summer I taught my first Make Your Decisions Count class with our first Summer Camp two-week program. I also run our Alumni program which leverages the skills of our incredible volunteers (probably many of you!) to teach students about the financial world and develop their job readiness skills. Last spring we piloted a Career Coach program in which we partnered 7 of our students with professional to provide one-on-one coaching. This semester we had 14 students graduate our program with robust resumes and practical experience networking and interviewing.
I'm so thankful for the generosity of our diverse group of friends, supporters, coaches, speakers, and volunteers. You're part of an incredible community and we coudn't do this valuable work without your tremendous support.
Every contribution -- $100, 50, 25, even $10 -- makes a difference in the lives of our youth. At GTA your hard-earned dollars are put to good use helping youth make sound financial and strategic life decisions.
If you're interested in continuing to invest in Oakland youth, please CLICK DONATE to make a donation and help me reach my $500 goal. With your support, the GTA team will be ready to hit the ground running in 2016.
Thank you for your ongoing support and generosity.
