The specific purpose of the AEG Oakland Community Foundation is to improve the lives of children and families and encourage urban economic development in Alameda County. We do this through fundraising and working with local governments & social organizations to provide relief and encourage education to poor or underprivileged children and families. We also strive to advance education, eliminate prejudice and discrimination and defend human and civil rights secured by law.
Check out all of our accomplishments in both the community and sustainability fields from the past year!

AEG JOB SHADOWING PROGRAM
In 2011, the AEG Job Shadowing Program was established as a partnership that brings educators, industry, and community partners together to create a supplemental educational opportunity for high school students.
Youth participants gain valuable experience and insight into the world of work through direct observation, hands on activities, and close engagement with AEG team members. The AEG Job Shadowing Program not only inspires young people but also provides the youth of our communities with work readiness skills.
