Annual Back-to-school Shoe Giveaway
The 22nd Annual Back-To-School Shoe Giveaway “Put Your Best Foot Forward” returned on Saturday, September 29, 2018. First African Methodist Episcopal (FAME) Church has hosted this event for 20 years and in partnership with the AEG Oakland Community Foundation, the celebration continues to remain at the Oakland Arena and RingCentral Coliseum Complex.
Over 5,000 people were provided health resources and enjoyed family-oriented activities and over 2,600 students were provided new shoes at last year's event.
AEG Job Shadowing Program
In 2011, the AEG Job Shadowing Program was established as a partnership that brings educators, industry, and community partners together to create a supplemental educational opportunity for high school students.
Youth participants gain valuable experience and insight into the world of work through direct observation, hands-on activities, and close engagement with AEG team members. The AEG Job Shadowing Program not only inspires young people but also provides the youth of our communities with work readiness skills.
