WHO WE ARE?
Since 2007 we have been reaching at-risk youth in Oakland by implementing creative and effective faith-based programs. We are instilling christian values in youth and children which become their foundation to impact them to take courage and power to be a point of light in their communities, providing hope and relief to other youth within Oakland.
WHY ARE WE DOING IT?
Almost 95% of Oakland churches do not have a children/youth worker or programs that would effectively reduce the violent trends being committed among youth. Inner city churches are overwhelmed by their communities’ needs and hurts, and in most cases do not have the resources to offer youth and children an effective life changing program.
Points of Light

“Points of Light reaches hundreds of at-risk youth and children in Oakland through a weekly variety of faith-based programs designed to instill leadership, self-confidence and Christian based values. Points of Light (POL) provides hope through understanding the love of Jesus.We are here to combat the issues that have devastated the inner city youth and children of Oakland. During this high racial tension we live in know, Points of Light will once again be a bridge of racial reconciliation and a bridge between good police and inner city”
