We’re  proud to announce the expansion of our Community Partners program. In 2011 the program offered tuition discounts to educators, and in 2012 we’ve expanded the program to include discounts for public educators, firefighters, police officers, active military, veterans, City of Oakland employees  and senior citizens.

Participants in the Community Partners program receive 50% discount off tuition on classes at The Crucible. Available classes include welding, glassblowing, blacksmithing, jewelry-making and woodworking, offering participants opportunities to learn skills to enrich their lives and train for the future.

Sound interesting? We invite you to discover and become part of our learning community. Emphasis is placed on community partnerships and on creating an open learning environment. At The Crucible forges roar, sparks fly, glass bends, neon glows and creativity explodes.
