Youth Focus: Oakland’s Future – Edition III

Edition III—Youth Focus: Oakland’s Future with Oakland Mayor Jean Quan, March 15, 2012

“I believe that a job stops a bullet. I think a lot of young people wouldn’t be on the streets if we could provide them with real jobs.”  Oakland Mayor Jean Quan, Youth Focus, April 14, 2011


Mayor Jean Quan first appeared on Youth Focus in April 2011. She returned to the KDOL-TV studio on March 15, 2012 to report on her campaign pledge to help young people in Oakland.  The young moderators and panelists sat face-to-face with the mayor to ask how her administration has been progressing on education, jobs, violence and safety, and the city’s relationship with youth.
