Resources to Support You During COVID-19

Our Situation

We are always thinking about our students and families. Today, our six partnered schools has been closed for weeks, meaning our Super Stars are not getting the basic and extra help they need to succeed. Our parents, too, are facing difficult times trying to make a living while taking care of their kids.

It is also a challenging time for our Super Stars Literacy staff. Our Americorps members cannot serve their community conventionally and staff are working remotely until it is safe to have meetings in person again. We are struggling too and feel the impact of COVID-19 like every person.

How can we step closer to our mission from our homes? That is the question we are trying to answer. Currently, we are working on ways to continue to transform lives through literacy for the children of Oakland, CA, though it will take some time. Please wait for our updates. For now, we want to highlight some resources provided by amazing people from all parts of the country. They inspire us, and we thank them for everything they are doing to provide for our families.
