Downtown Streets Team Oakland is proud to announce our Streets Team Enterprises (STE) program Team Work Oakland! Team Work Oakland provides individuals with the opportunity to receive on-the-job paid training at two partnering sites, Bay Area Community Resources (BACS) or Block by Block (BBB).

At BACS, individuals perform the role of Peer Counselor and use their experiences to help others overcome challenges in their lives. At BBB, individuals preform the role of Street Maintenance and Hospitality, supporting clean and friendly streets in Oakland.
