Good News! After 23 years in West Oakland, making life changes in community residents, Cypress Mandela Training Center, Inc.(CMTC), has relocated to 977 - 66th Avenue, Oakland, CA 94621. This has allowed us to expand the program by increasing the number of participants per training cycle. We hope this doesn’t cause an inconvenience to anyone; however, this expansion has allowed us to have a greater impact and help reduce crime within our communities. The new address is effective as of September 1, 2015. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this transition.
