You will receive your event ticket pickup date and time via email the first week of July.  Please do not go to any site to pick up your ticket prior to receiving that email.

Please contact us if you have any questions.






The 11th Attend & Achieve Back to School Rally 2018 is a partnership effort with the Oakland Natives Give Back, Oakland Fire IAF55, Oakland Police, PG&E, The Hair-Gym, Ace Kids Golf, Parks and Recreation and Oakland Unified School District.

This spectacular event will be held from 9:00 am to 4:00 p.m., Sunday, August 5th at Oakland at City Hall, located at 1 Frank H. Ogawa Plaza.  

The Back-to-School Rally is designed for community engagement, fun, inspiration and most importantly: to prepare you and your family to blast into the school year ready to succeed!!

The event will feature:

  • Free giveaways to the first 1000 ELEMENTARY children*

  • Information that is key to academic success

  • Pony rides, a carnival, musical entertainment and more

  • Free haircuts and braiders

  • Youth, teen and parent workshops

  • Admission is FREE to ALL ATTENDEES (must be registered)!!!

*General Rules and Disclaimers PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!!!

  1. Online registration is MANDATORY to receive an invitation and admission ticket


  3. After registering online you will receive an email with details to pick up your ticket.  

  4. In order to receive "tools for school", registered participants MUST attend life enrichment workshops, enjoy lunch with us and take advantage of networking opportunities with vendors.  This year we have taken precautions to ensure full participation.

  5. Distribution of the "tools for school" will take place at the end of the program and will be given to those with wristbands.  If you have to leave the event prior to the giveaway, we will have to remove your wristband and you will not get your items.

  6. Your registered child must be in attendance for the ENTIRE event to receive their "tools for school".  NO EXCEPTIONS!!

  7. This is NOT simply a backpack giveaway.  This is an all-day celebration that you need to plan to attend from 9am-4pm.  Again, if you do not wish to attend, you should sign up for the “Backpack Only” waitlist.   

  8. By registering to attend the 11th Annual Attend & Achieve Back to School Rally sponsored by Oakland Natives Give Back, you are registering your child to participate in all ONGB programs and services. ONGB program membership will automatically expire at age 18 or at the high school completion date given during the registration.

  9. You must only register for the event OR giveaway waitlist. Registering for both will disqualify you from both.   

***Registration Guidelines***

The parent or guardian must be the one to register the child.  

Online registration does not guarantee the "tools for school" or shoes. Priority goes to those who arrive during the registration period on the morning of the event.  If you do not arrive by 10:00 AM, you MAY NOT receive items. If you register and arrive at the time specified above, you will receive a backpack and school supplies, but no other offering is guaranteed (ie. shoes, toys, prizes).  


Please do not register for anyone who does not plan to attend. The person on our registration roster must be present to receive backpack and supplies.



If you are unable to attend the rally we would love to still help you start the new school year ready to succeed!

Oakland Natives Give Back

Established in 2008, Oakland Natives Give Back Fund exists today because of the vision of founders, Nyeisha DeWitt, Delicia (Dee Dee) Abdur-Rahim, and Tameka Raymond. All natives of Oakland, Nyeisha, Dee Dee, and Tameka have come together, representing three different organizations, to form the Oakland Natives Give Back, which has enabled them to show solidarity and oneness with the Oakland community.  Their mission is to be an example to all Oakland natives by declaring that your commitment to the community in which you reside should not supersede your contribution to the community in which you were reared.
