Welcome to the Teen Zone!
Welcome to Oakland's virtual TeenZone! This website has a ton of new stuff for you to explore! What kind of stuff? How about an extensive new Test Preparation list to help you get ready for the CAHSEE, SAT, ACT, or GED. Or, what about our new Mind & Body section with tons of local and online resources for staying healthy, getting counseling, and making choices about safe sex and relationships.
Looking for ways to help your community or get job experience? On the Get Involved page, you can learn how to Volunteer at the library, join your local branch Teen Advisory Group, or become a civic leader through our acclaimed Youth Leadership Council.
Looking for other ways to get job experience or get ready for college? Check out our Jobs and School sections. And don't miss all the jobs, scholarships, contests and events we post daily on facebook!
Oh, and while you're here, have some Fun with music, art, games and writing too. Then, come visit one of six TeenZones throughout Oakland.
