Our Staff

Heads Up provides a unique blend of educators that have a commitment to social justice, youth development experience, and academic content knowledge.

Our faculty and staff are a diverse group of educators who share a passion for teaching and learning. Our educators often work full-time during the academic school year within an Oakland school, lending their cultural and professional lens to Heads Up.

What makes it amazing is the quality of the instructors, students, and counselors. And students get to go every summer.

Relationship building was the biggest thing...In 4 weeks we were able to build such a strong community.

Being on the Head-Royce campus, students feel like they deserve to be here; and because they feel they deserve to be here, they give it their whole self.

Heads Up matters because it builds a community where students and adults are transformed through knowledge sharing and creativity.
