Our Mission

The West Oakland Job Resource Center is committed to transforming the lives of under-served residents of West Oakland and the greater Bay Area by building a thriving, inclusive community that provides financial and economic opportunities, and by catalyzing industry and policy change.

Redeveloping the Former Oakland Army Base

The WOJRC was established in 2012, and is a project of the City of Oakland Local Hire Ordinance, with Urban Strategies Council serving as its fiscal agent. Job-seekers receive local hire information, counseling and referral services, introduction to construction pre-apprenticeship and apprenticeship programs to meet the talent demands of the OAB and Port employers.

The City Ordinance has designated WOJRC as the 1st Source, to assist Oakland Army Base (OAB) employers with fulfilling 50% of their workforce with Oakland residents, and 25% with economically disadvantaged hires.
