Trybe is a community-based nonprofit rooted in East Oakland that strengthens households by focusing on the stable, sustainable resources needed to transform youth and families.

Trybe’s youth-centered mission focuses not only on serving young people but also on serving their families. Reaching the whole family unit is what will provide the stability and sustainability needed to transform communities. Typically when youth are in distress, it is due to circumstances in their household environment. But young people can overcome many obstacles and injustices if they have the support of a strong, loving household. Thus, Trybe believes the best way to help young people thrive for the long term is by reaching their families—through accessing young people themselves.
