Strategic Plan

The Oakland Fund for Children and Youth (OFCY) strategic plan guides OFCY's funding priorities for OFCY's three year grant cycle. The plan implements the four goals of OFCY's authorizing legislation, Measure D, KidsFirst!. The plan provides a needs assessment of Oakland's children and youth and an overview of four strategy areas. 

2019-2022 Strategic Investment Plan

The Planning and Oversight Committee and OFCY staff are developing the strategic investment plan for 2019-2022 with input from Oakland's youth, parents, service providers, and key stakeholders. OFCY is aiming to have a new plan developed in Spring 2018 and adopted by City Council in summer 2018. As materials are developed and events begin to be planned, more information will be made available here on the OFCY website. 

Community Cafés

The City of Oakland is excited to be hosting a series of community conversations with youth, parents, service providers and concerned residents on how to best serve Oakland's young people through funding from the Oakland Fund for Children and Youth (OFCY). These events are co-sponsored and co-hosted by the Oakland Youth Advisory Commission (OYAC), and will help inform the youth commissioners on needs and priorities in Oakland.

Each event will have a focus area, but your input doesn't need to be limited to only these topics. If you have ideas related to OFCY's vision that all children and youth in Oakland will thrive and have the support of the entire community to lead safe, healthy and productive lives, please come on out!

  • Thursday, March 1st: Youth Impact Hub (5pm-7pm)
    • Youth Leadership, Empowerment & Employment
  • Saturday, March 10th: Tassafaronga Recreation Center (11am-1pm)
    • Economic Equity
  • Tuesday, March 13th: César E. Chávez Branch Library (4pm-6pm)
    • Early Childhood, Parent Support, and Student Success
  • Date and Location TBD
    • Youth Development, Arts, and Community Safety

Help OFCY to meet its mission to provide strategic funding to support Oakland's children and youth from birth to 20 years of age to become healthy, happy, educated, engaged, powerful and loved community members. Your participation and input will help create a Strategic Investment Plan that will guide OFCY funding for direct services for children and youth in 2019-2022.

Food and childcare will be provided at each meeting! If possible, please RSVP at Everyone is welcome!
