Community Partner Spotlight



It has been an intense, but powerfully affirming school year. After more than a year of remote learning and countless pandemic-related struggles, our students returned to school campuses last August with unprecedented levels of social anxiety and PTSD. Some of our students had challenges focusing and staying on task. Others struggled to communicate, express emotions, and engage in healthy ways with their peers. On a daily basis, Oakland Leaf staff had to draw upon their training in social-emotional development, restorative practices, and trauma-informed care to meet students where they were at, earn their trust, and support them to learn new and regain lost - social skills. Ultimately, the sense of consistency, structure, and loving care that our staff provided had a profoundly positive impact on our students. In the supportive and joyful spaces of our afterschool programs, previously disengaged and socially isolated students explored new interests and developed new friendships that carried over into the school day. Emboldened by the daily encouragement of mentors, even our most reserved interns found the courage to step outside their comfort zones, share their ideas, and try out new leadership roles. Underlying each of our student success stories is Oakland Leaf's deep commitment to relationship and community building. Oakland Leaf Instructors, program managers, and restorative justice facilitators work hard to cultivate safe spaces, and strong relationships of trust, where students feel comfortable opening up about their experiences, challenges, anxieties, and aspirations. At the beginning of every school year, program staff spend several weeks working with students to cultivate ground rules and guiding values for the group, centering empathy and inclusion. Throughout the year, they actively and consistently nurture a sense of collective identity and community, at the same time that they are instilling in each student an appreciation of difference and individuality. Every convening of youth — be it an afterschool program class of kindergartners or a professional development workshop for high school interns — starts with a check in about how students are feeling and what is going on for them, and ends with both students and staff sharing individual and group appreciations. In this spirit of gratitude, on behalf of all of us at Oakland Leaf, I want to express my deep appreciation to all of the partners, donors, volunteers, and funders who make this work possible. Your belief and investment in our programs means so much to us all. Thank you for being a part of our community. Gratefully, Melissa Mendez Ochoa Executive Director

Afterschool Programs I love program because our teachers are kind to us and they plan out activities I like. Every time we are sad they always help us feel better. — Tiana, 3rd grade

Oakland Leaf provided quality, enriching, and free afterschool programming for approximately 750 East Oakland students at six high-need elementary and middle schools this past year.

I love program because we have bubbles & pizza parties and it makes us feel happy! — Jaidy, 2nd grade

All of our afterschool programs centered socialemotional learning, creative arts, physical activity, access to nature, social justice, and academic support.

Social-emotional Learning (SEL) Our SEL curriculum included daily interactive lessons designed to support youth to develop healthy identities, understand and manage their emotions, establish and maintain healthy relationships, advocate for their needs, feel and show empathy, achieve personal and collective goals, and make responsible and caring decisions.

Our Restorative Justice Coordinators also facilitated student sharing circles multiple times a week that gave students a consistent emotional outlet, supported relationship-building, and helped students develop the skills and confidence to express their feelings, voice their opinions, and work collaboratively through problems. 8

Spotlight on Restorative Justice At Oakland Leaf, we see RJ as much more than a set of conflict resolution or behavior management tools. We draw from RJ’s roots in indigenous peacemaking practices that provide a holistic framework for not only repairing harm, but also nurturing and sustaining individual relationships and community bonds. An afterschool program class of twenty 5th grade students was experiencing ongoing challenges related to bullying behavior and conflict between students. The RJ Coordinator organized a circle about anger and healthy ways of managing and expressing it. Students passed around a talking piece and shared why they were personally having a hard time, and why they thought the group was struggling. Consistently, this go-round revealed underlying issues such as hurt feelings or conflict from earlier in the school day, fatigue, students missing their parents, or anxiety about issues at home, among other challenges. After this, students shared how they tend to express and respond to different emotions, and what the outcomes tend to be (for better or worse) of various methods of expression. Next, the RJ Coordinator said “Now we know what is happening. What do we need for ourselves, from another person, from the instructor, or in general, to be able to move forward in a positive way?” Students shared things like "When I get mad, I need a break and some alone time", "I need my friends to say something nice to me", and "I need some one-on-one time with a grownup". The last part of the circle involved everyone making a commitment to what they would do to help the group move forward in a more healthy way. Students made commitments such as “I will ask for space when I need it”, “I will try to be more understanding when someone says or does something I don’t like”, and “I will share my appreciation when others are stepping up in positive ways”. For the remainder of the year, the RJ Coordinator regularly checked in with this group and each student, reminding them of their commitments and creating spaces for them to share progress and challenges. The original intervention - and ongoing support made a huge difference in student behavior and group morale.

Creative Arts An abundance of research confirms what we have seen again and again in our work with youth: creative experiences in childhood can have transformative impacts. Among other noted benefits, engagement with the arts strengthens young peoples’ academic, problem-solving, and social skills, and boosts confidence and motivation. As part of our creative arts programming this past year, we offered poetry, theater arts, dance, digital arts, DIY crafts, drawing, and STEM experimentation and tinkering classes.

Afterschool program student poems Earth Poem Earth is like flowers in the Spring, But the way we treat it, it's like a trash can with plastic and food. All places could use our help by picking up trash, to make it look like a lavender field on a sunny day. Make it look like a beautiful rose, The Best Parts of Me also like stars in the night. I want to help make the ocean look like I love my feet. the beautiful sky in the daytime. They help me feel the smooth grass. Anderson Diaz

Look Around Nature is beautiful. From the coral reefs in the ocean To the flowers on the forest floor To the highest branches of the redwoods. The wind whispers a quiet song, Rustling the leaves on the branches of the trees. Look at the sky Look at the sky The sun with its brightness. The clouds with their beauty and the snow with its whiteness. Beneath the ground With the beautiful stones, like diamonds and emeralds. The glowing bright red and orange magma

I love my arms and hands. They help me carry and reach to the sky. I love my eyes. They help me see all the wonderful things around me. I love my heart. It helps me feel. I love... Myself Zaccai Narvaez

But also The roots of the bushes, the trees, the flowers, the vines and more. Small and big, Interlocking Some digging deep and some not. Friendship is a Very Good Gift The vivid colorful flowers coating the fields and hills of grass. To me, friendship is a gift. As beautiful as diamonds and stars covering the night sky. They make me feel special and loved. Flowers attracting pollinators I also make them feel special. like bees, butterflies But one thing they don’t know and the beautiful glimmering hummingbirds is how much I love them. with their iridescent feathers. Friends matter because they can help you grow You may be drawn back because of the turds to be the best you. of the animals and birds Friends can make ANYONE feel But put down your device anyway. like there is someone out there in the world Go into nature that cares for you. And look around. Friendships encourage me to do amazing things. Vivienne Clanton They try to make me feel happy when I’m sad. They are like the beautiful stars in the sky. Friendship is a very good gift. Amayrani Mendez


Physical activity We offered soccer, basketball, softball, and bike club and we prioritized movement and physical play (e.g. yoga, dance parties, and freeze tag) on a daily basis because of the many health benefits of physical activity, and because we understand, and have observed first-hand, how movement helps release emotional tension and creates endorphins that improve moods.


Oakland Leaf Annual Report 2021-22

Access to nature One of the highlights of being back on school campuses this year was the opportunity to relaunch our school garden clubs. Students planted seeds, harvested fruits and vegetables, picked flowers, studied insects, and explored the natural world, learning firsthand the connection between nature and their own food supply. Garden clubs also included nutritional education, and students sampled and took home produce.


Oakland Leaf Annual Report 2021-22

Social Justice Oakland Leaf partnered with American Scores to facilitate a service learning curriculum customized for each grade. Groups of students collaboratively selected an issue, conducted community research on the problem and possible solutions, and designed and carried out a service project. At the end of each semester, students presented their findings and reflections as part of our student showcases. We also offered social justice history and cultural awareness lessons and activities throughout the year, reflecting monthly themes including Black History Month, Latinx Heritage Month, Women's History Month, LGBTQ History Month, and others.

Academic support

Our academic engagement focused on literacy instruction and homework support, and included study halls, small group subject-specific support sessions, and one-one-one tutoring. We regularly checked-in and collaborated with school day staff to design customized intervention and support strategies for our students who were struggling academically.

ROOTS 20 Roots interns worked as instructor aids in one of our afterschool programs. They received training and coaching, and were matched with an instructor who they shadowed, supported, and received regular feedback from. As instructor aids, interns provided oneon-one social-emotional and academic support to ASP students, facilitated creative play activities, and provided administrative support for programs. All Roots interns received support to create - and carry out - Individual Development Plans which including academic, personal, and professional goals. They also participated in a range of professional and leadership development trainings and gained handson research, public speaking, and advocacy skills through their participation in the California Afterschool Challenge, an annual statewide action to advance the out-of-school time field.

Being a Roots intern has really pushed me outside of my comfort zone in hard, but really important ways. My time as an intern and my mentors in the Roots program have helped me to become more confident and more brave. Now, if I know that I will grow from an experience or I know that it will lead to something I really want, I am willing and able to push past my fears. — Joseline, Roots Intern Joseline speaking at Oakland Leaf's Love in Action event in May.

My favorite part of the internship has been supporting the afterschool program students to grow academically and socially. It means a lot to me to be able to give back in this way because I was in afterschool programs when I was a kid and it had a huge impact on me. I remember seeing all these young adults that came from my neighborhood and looked like me that were in leadership positions, managing big groups of students. I remember thinking “They aren’t so much older than me. Maybe I can be a leader like that when I’m older.” — Liyah, Roots Intern Liyah, beaming, after logging in and finding out she got accepted to UC Berkeley, while surrounded by her afterschool program students.

LOve Cultivating Schoolyards Love Cultivating Schoolyards (LCS) interns received comprehensive training on the diverse skills required to be an independent urban farmer, including hands-on experience planting, maintaining, and harvesting organic veggies, fruits, and herbs at our one-acre farm in East Oakland. The produce they harvested was the core of our weekly food distribution initiative, as well as our weekly LCS Free Farm Stand. Oakland Leaf distributed nearly 10,000 lbs of produce last year! LCS interns also learned about a variety of food justice, environmental justice, and racial justice issues related to urban agriculture and local food systems. Among other research projects, interns carried out an initiative to identify, assess, categorize, and map every type of food “source” in their neighborhoods, including supermarkets, gardens, produce stands, liquor/corner stores, fast food restaurants, schools, street vendors, and more. Additionally, all interns were provided with materials and guidance to create and maintain their own home gardens to feed and support the wellness of their families.

My internship helped to make me into a leader with confidence and knowledge, not only about urban farming, but also knowledge of self. — Diego, 4th year Intern

At least once a semester, LCS and Roots interns come together to participate in immersive nature experiences that include community and trust building activities. This year's spring excursion at Reinhardt Redwood Regional Park was such a bonding experience that interns from both programs created an instagram chat group to keep in touch and coordinate future hikes. 19

summer internship program We coordinated a three week intensive summer internship program for 28 high school students at the Castlemont Farm in June. The program included trainings, community building activities, discussions, projectbased learning, outdoor excursions, and more. Interns learned about urban farming, food systems, and environmental stewardship, while getting hands-on experience growing and harvesting produce. They also participated in leadership development and social-emotional learning workshops on topics such as wellness practices, setting and achieving goals, holding yourself and your peers accountable, and developing and maintaining healthy relationships, among others. This year's summer Rites of Passage excursion was a camping trip at Puma Point. Interns set up camp, went on hikes, participated in team-building activities, and cooked together. For most of the interns, it was their first time camping. We closed out the summer program with a group trip to Great America.

Community Partner spotlight Oakland Leaf began its partnership with Wind River, a global software company headquartered in Alameda, in 2017. Wind River is especially invested in Oakland Leaf’s afterschool STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) programming. One of their first employee volunteer efforts with Oakland Leaf was providing hands-on support for our Family Science Nights. Since then, they’ve volunteered in our school gardens, organized massive Back-to-School classroom supply drives, donated furniture for our programs, and purchased reusable water bottles for our students, among other efforts. Wind River also makes multiple generous financial gifts to Oakland Leaf each year. We are so grateful for Wind River’s many contributions to Oakland Leaf programs, and we look forward to many years of creative partnership.
