Boys & Girls Clubs of Oakland’s 32nd Annual Salute to Youth event presented virtually by Gilead Sciences and first streamed online Thursday, June 24, 2021 to celebrate the promise and the achievements of all BGCO student-members as personified by our 2021 Youth of the Year, Tyree—a budding young entrepreneur who graduated from high school in June, 2021 and will matriculate to college this fall to pursue a major in business.
Special Thanks to our on-air talent including Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, a long time friend and former volunteer for BGCO, and Latin Jazz icon Pete Escovedo (a BGCO alumnus) for lending their time and talents to our Salute; to Tyree, our 2021 Youth of the Year, and Bre, our 2020 Youth of the Year for their help and for personifying our mission results; to NBC Bay Area Meteorologist for Kari Hall for an outstanding job as our Emcee; and our President & CEO Cal Stanley (also a BGCO alumnus) for his untiring efforts.
Thanks to our Presenting Sponsor, Gilead Sciences and a host of other friends and supporters, as of July 7, 2021 our 2021 Salute to Youth has eclipsed its goal yielding $205,306 to help sustain BGCO’s mission in 3 flatland Oakland neighborhoods, after school and year-round.


Note from Zennie62Media and : this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a YouTube channel. When the video is “liked” by Zennie62 YouTube, then it is automatically uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective here, on top of our is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours – is the use of the existing YouTube social graph on any subject in the World. Now, news is reported with a smartphone and also by promoting current content on YouTube: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary, or having a camera crew to shoot what is already on YouTube. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
