A new initiative is being developed to support young entrepreneurs and economic development for Oakland’s young residents.  The Youth HUB(a collaboration between United Roots and Youth SEED, in partnership with HUB Oakland) aims to provide a collaborative workspace for young social innovators, offering programming and community networking while engaging businesses, agencies and organizations to support community-led change.

We are conducting market research to (1) understand barriers to youth employment, how to enhance economic opportunities and (2) the feasibility of the Youth HUB (coworking space).   We are focusing this research on (1) business owners and managers and (2) Community Based Youth Workers.  If you are either one of these, your input will greatly support our ability to provide better programing for our cities youth.

Participation in this study involves an online survey and takes just 10 minutes.

Please forward this survey widely so that we are able to get many diverse perspectives.

Deep gratitude for your time and consideration,
