The OSLN was created in 2011 as a collaborative effort of several private schools, community-based organizations, and government agencies in Oakland, working to expand the number of summer learning opportunities for middle school youth.
For several years, the Rogers Foundation and the Oakland Literacy Coalition took the lead in convening the group. In 2014, the Partnership for Children & Youth adopted the convening role with funding from the Rogers, Scully and Long Foundations. In early 2015, PCY convened a number of key leaders to plan the next phase of the OSLN.
Here are the notes from the 2/17/15 OSLN Planning Meeting.
