TheCIL Youth Meets with Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf

Updated: Feb 10



On Monday, May 14th, 2019, TheCIL's Youth Transitions Class traveled to Oakland's City Hall for an exclusive meeting with Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf. The CIL’s Youth Transition Program is meant to help students with disabilities be successful with their transition into post-secondary life.  

The students arrived at City Hall early Monday morning for their meeting with Mayor Schaaf. The Youth Transitions course involves practicing informal versus formal communication, which the students practiced in class. For their formal communication, they prepared questions, comments, and concerns about the City of Oakland, in preparation for their meeting with the Mayor.

During the half-hour meeting, Mayor Schaaf briefly discussed her beliefs as Mayor, and how those beliefs have clashed with the President's in the past few years. Then, she listened to the questions and comments from the students. Some of the topics included issues of homelessness, housing, education, and the Oakland A's - some of Mayor Schaaf's most important issues. Thanks to Mayor Schaaf and her staff for welcoming TheCIL's students for the second year, and we hope to be back again soon!
