The Oakland program has a focus on engaging young Black men from the Oakland area and the DetermiNation program model was created and developed by Markese Bryant. The DetermiNation program is especially tailored to support young men who are struggling to advance in their own life goals (such as employment, career, educational, or other personal goals) and who have been formerly involved in or are currently in close proximity to the “street life”. As part of the program youth participants develop their media production skills and produce projects like short films, music and graphic designs to share their personal stories and/or present a vision of what is possible for young men of color in our communities.
