"My daughter couldn't attend her full session in the summer due to family issues, but Angela, the staff and the children were truly phenomenal : authentic community/extended family energy, effective holistic learning, permaculture, body movement, music, gardening at Lake Merritt, multicultural and intergenerational. I will absolutely support to my maximum ability whenever I can."   
Ashea Fuller

"I wanted to thank you for the meaningful inspiration that you have sparked in learning about different musical genres and how to play various percussion instruments. Both Jair and Xochitl really enjoyed your summer music program! 
We need more quality, creative & culturally diverse music programs in the city of Oakland. . . Jason and I send you and your wonderful staff lots of blessings."
