Link21 is working with the California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA) and our partners to transform Northern California’s passenger rail network into a faster, more integrated system. The goal is to provide safe, efficient and affordable travel for everyone.
As a member of the Link21 team, Acumen is one of several firms that raised funds over the holidays in 2021 for organizations that benefit our communities. Acumen’s President and CEO Walter Allen selected East Oakland Youth Development Center as Acumen’s organization of choice to donate to as part of the Link21 Holiday Fundraiser.
The mission of the East Oakland Youth Development Center is to develop the social and leadership capacities of youth, so that they achieve excellence in education, career and service to their communities. Allen believes that individuals must be given an opportunity to learn marketable skills, attain a basic education and participate in motivating and inspiring activities. Self-empowerment comes through work experience and educational opportunities.
