Ella Baker Center

The Ella Baker Center, in addition to helping spawn the national support group, Green for All, has also been a green collar jobs pioneer at the local level. With $250,000 in seed funding secured from the Oakland City Council in June 2007, the Oakland Green Jobs Corps is expected to launch in early 2008 and will involve at least 20 local and regional green employers in the Green Business Council. Each participating firm will agree to provide internship positions for Oakland Green Jobs Corps trainees recruited from low-income Oakland city neighborhoods.
