In the spring of 2020, a coalition of transitional-aged youth (TAY) and adults who serve them, including stakeholders who work for Oakland Unified School District (OUSD), the city of Oakland, Alameda County, Peralta Colleges, faith-based organizations, and community-based organizations, won a campaign for a Career Technical Education (CTE) Hub at 1025 2nd Avenue in Oakland California. Included in the Measure Y Bond project list, CTE Hub at 1025 2nd Avenue, also known as TAYHub, secured funding from OUSD facilities bond, the city of Oakland, and through private support. With fiscal sponsorship from MSC, TAYHub is establishing a planning process to serve youths who need alternative pathways to post-secondary success.

The location is integral to the TAYHub vision. Situated in the heart of Oakland, close to public transportation, and across the street from Laney College, Dewey Academy, and La Escuelita Education Center, the location is not only safe, healthy, and accessible, but it builds on the important history of the land — honoring the legacy of Marcus Foster, the first Black superintendent of Oakland Unified School District.

TAYHub will provide in-depth support, wrap around services (health, wellness, social, emotional, etc.), a technical education center with hands-on job training on real life equipment in several trades, a space for athletic programs, a student-run cafe, and additional services and support for OUSD students and family.
