Fuego Leader Graduates
Up to ten new Fuego students are selected each year and 1st-year students are encouraged to return for a second year. In order to apply, students must have completed at least three Crucible classes and be recommended by Crucible faculty or staff. Each Fuego student is paired with an experienced faculty instructor for two summers, with the goal of developing career skills, establishing rewarding relationships with mentors, and becoming leaders. Fuego leaders support teachers in the classroom, provide industrial arts demonstrations onsite and at Oakland festivals and cultural events, and mentor younger students.
