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.
2300 El Portal Drive - Suite C, San Pablo, CA 94806
At San Pablo, we offer both IC3 and A+ Computer Technician courses twice a year. In 2011, we enrolled 81 people in 4 courses. Unemployment rates in San Pablo are high, and The Stride Center’s services in technical training and work readiness skills are definitely in demand. San Pablo is also home to our social venture, ReliaTech, which offers work internships through recycling, reusing, and reselling computers as well as providing low cost tech support to the community.
Many of our students in San Pablo get referred from other programs and agencies, such as CalWorks, Employment Development Department (EDD), Contra Costa County Social Services, Work Investment Act (WIA), and SparkPoint.
