The Oakland A's are proud to partner with The ESM Group to create the A's Leadership Academy. The Academy gives 11th and 12th grade students from the East Bay an opportunity to get an insider's perspective on how a sports business is run and to also become an active participant in this unique process. The academy will run July 8-12 at the O.co Coliseum.
The application process for this program will begin shortly.
On select game dates elementary school students from across Oakland come the O.co Coliseum to receive help with their homework from tutors and aids. After the students have finished their homework they are able to sit in the stands and watch the game.
On the last meeting of the spring and fall sessions an A's player will visit and sign autographs for the students as a way to congratulate them for all of their hard work.
