KTGY Mentor Program KTGY recently hosted the students of the sixth grade class in the firm’s Oakland office.

OAKLAND, CA—While acknowledging the mentors who have guided many a career in commercial real estate and other disciplines, along with the notion that architecture can be a key part of problem solving, a mentor program was born for a group of local sixth graders. KTGY Architecture + Planning’s Oakland office, working with the Oakland Public Education Fund, recently adopted a sixth grade class at Madison Park Business and Art Academy, which has served the East Oakland community since 1959. Cindy Ma, senior planner, is heading up the program for KTGY.
