Home Renovation and Environmental Cleanup
Rebuilding Together Oakland

Come work with youth at Children's Fairyland! We do everything from painting murals to teaching crafts.
PCSC goes to San Leandro to act as a jury in non-violent first time offender trials of youth.
If you or someone you know is interested in leading an event, contact the VP Program! Not sure who that is? See our Crew Leaders page.
