United Roots is Oakland's Green Youth Arts & Media Center. United Roots engages and empowers marginalized youth through youth leadership, arts and media training, career and workforce development, community engagement projects and by creating a safe and healing environment. United Roots offers free classes and paid training opportunities to youth ages 13-24 in music production, graphic design, video production and webdesign. The United Roots community center in Oakland is green, and youth leaders from the program repurposed the space with non-voc paints, recycled carpeting and bamboo flooring. The media center is powered by solar panels, and the building has a rainwater catchment system, an aquaponics system  and a permaculture parking lot garden.
