The Stride Center focuses its efforts on creating ICT jobs in the Bay Area’s urban cities and Sacramento for the most challenged communities to leverage anchor institutions, service partners and to lift our clients out of poverty. By being located in the heart of downtown Oakland, we are building our clients’ employment skills and building stronger communities at the same time.
1212 Broadway - Suite #400, Oakland, CA 94612
Oakland is The Stride Center’s hub – with the highest number of enrollments and the most course offerings. In 2011 we enrolled 248 students in 10 courses. Our Oakland office is widely accessible to a range of Bay Area residents living in Oakland and beyond. It is centrally located just steps away from the Downtown Oakland 12th Street BART Station. The Stride Center moved its central headquarters here from San Pablo in 2010.
Many of our students in Oakland get referred from other programs and agencies, such as CalWorks, Employment Development Department (EDD), Alameda County Social Services, Work Investment Act (WIA), and Department of Rehabilitation, and SparkPoint.
