The Town Square is an Oakland based youth organization that provides a safe space and the resources for young people to become self-empowered, self-aware leaders and individuals that build community through cultivation of creative craft and entrepreneurship. Utilizing a model of attachment, we build a safety net of strong bonds with each other, encouraging youth to take healthy risks, trust and rely on the strength of community, and reflect, analyze, and continually improve on their creative process enabling growth, achievement, and upward mobility.
