3400 Building Renovation
By Ruben Moody
Fresh carpet. Painted walls. New tenants. The office located on the corner of 34th Street and 3rd Avenue, previously home to Teach for America and College Track, is looking different these days. Recent renovations included new carpets, coats of fresh paint and making room to host large trainings. Another education focused nonprofit, City Year Sacramento, has moved in and will use the 3400 building to house its full time staff as well as host professional development sessions for up to 80 people. Tina Nguyen, City Year’s Operations Manager, says the updates make the space feel homey and she is excited to be completely moved in.
City Year’s Executive Director Jeff Owen is enthusiastic about the renovations and new location as well. Owen remarked, “The new space will be huge for connecting with the students and families of South Sacramento since we will now be closer to the schools we serve. The new locations make us feel like we are part of the community. City Year is a proud tenant and representative of Oak Park.” Previously, City Year’s office was located near the state capitol, a 15 to 20 minute drive from many of the schools where corps members are placed
In addition to City Year, the Greater Sacramento Urban League, United Way and the Oak Park Promise Neighborhood will also have offices at the 3400 Building. To view the new office, City Year invites Sacramento out to their Opening Day, scheduled for Friday October 7th at 10am. For inquiries or to RSVP contact Tina Nguyen at firstname.lastname@example.org
