The Partnership

The Partnership—a collaboration among Oakland Unified School District, Alameda Health System, and the Alameda County Health Care Services Agency—prepares Oakland youth for a range of exciting careers in the rapidly growing health care sector. Through high-quality college and career pathways that combine rigorous academics with supportive mentoring and a variety of practical, hands-on learning experiences, participants gain knowledge, skills, and confidence that will help them achieve their academic, career, and life goals.


Who are the Oakland Health Pathways Partnership members?

By providing academically rigorous, career-focused education, Oakland Unified School District’s Health Academies prepare students for college and health care careers.

Through hospital and clinic internships and other firsthand experiences, Alameda Health System’s HealthPATH initiative exposes youth to health care careers and connects them with inspiring adult role models.

With a goal of increasing diversity in the health care workforce, Alameda County Health Pathway Partnership provides mentorship, academic enrichment, leadership development, and career exposure.
