New Career Center opens

Written by Diana Nelson Jones on .

The new Oakland Career Center is holding an open house from 4-5.30p today at 294 Semple Street, with tours of the renovation, refreshments and dedication of the JoAnn Fountain community room, named in memory of one of Oakland’s most active advocates.
The Oakland Planning and Development Corp. has a long-term lease with the city to operate its JobLinks and School 2 Career programs there. 
More than 100 volunteers helped renovate the space, including residents and students who cleared old appliances, scrap metal and more than 60 bags of recycling and 40 bags of garbage.
