Impacting Communities of Tomorrow

We are about creating a safe and energetic learning environment where each child is encouraged to reach his/her highest potential. Our regular ImpACT program gives students the opportunity to experience hands-on learning that aids their academic curriculum as well as provide valuable life lessons and skills. We are committed to provide classes, mentorship, and activities of the highest caliber to further each individual student’s personal growth.

ImpACT is

A non-profit organization that provides a wide variety of academic enrichment curriculum and role models, and recreational and educational activities.

Providing academic enrichment curriculum and recreation for the inner city youth of Oakland. 

Our History

Started in 1997, ImpACT is run by a dedicated group of volunteers that want to make a lasting impression on the lives of children living in inner-city Oakland and Alameda. We want these kids to experience positive relationships and feel that there is excitement in learning.

We Care

Our passion has been to develop trust relationships with caring mentors and foster excitement for learning in children during their formative years in order to raise the next generation to become well-adjusted, contributing members of our community. We hope this can be a shared passion for every adult, teenager, college student and even children.


Our Staff

We, the teachers of ImpACT, are a group of recent graduates from UC Berkeley and San Francisco State University.  Though we differ in backgrounds, personalities and majors, we share the same heart and passion for being a role model to kids!
