Oakland is a prominent city in Danville 2nd Ward Young Men. Several episodes either show shots driving through Oakland, or take place somewhere in Oakland.

Several episodes show the Oakland Temple, in the Lincoln Highlands neighborhood of Oakland.Point Reyes 2011", there is a shot taken on the freeway in Oakland on the way to Point Reyes National Seashore.In "Wintertime 2012/2013", the Mormal (Mormon Formal) is held at the Interstake Center on Temple Hill in Oakland, and some of the Young Men go to it.
In "St. Anthony June 2013", Kalani Quereto, Kyle Worley, Bruce Wright, and Travis Neal drive through Oakland and debate about who's better between Tom Cruise and Tom Hanks on their way home from San Francisco.In "Youth Conference 2013", the Young Men are taken to various places with other youth. They're first taken to Joaquin Miller Park in Oakland. They hike through the redwoods to an overlook with a fantastic view of the city. They then hike down to the street and walk down to the Oakland Temple. Brody Rasmussen scales the wall of the staircase up to the Temple terrace. They walk around the terrace and find the cornerstone of the Temple.They then walk down the street to Head-Royce School. Jeremy Glenn tries to slide down the railing of the stairs, but ends up barely scooting along. They eat lunch at the school, and Brody throws a grape at Jeremy. The grape hits Jeremy's cup of water and knocks it over, spilling all over Jeremy's pants. Brody runs away, but Jeremy seeks revenge by chasing him down and pelting him with grapes. Their quarrel ends with Brody hugging Jeremy.
They then all go over to the school field and play various field games. Travis finds a drinking fountain that shoots water a couple feet into the air. He sprays Dallin Earl and Ashlyn Bruschke with it. Brody, Jeremy, Keola Quereto, Nick Laney, and Josh Laney all mess around with a giant ball on the field. They have Jeremy hold the ball, and they run to him and try to bounce off it. Brody and Jaren Garff run at each other with the ball.They accidentally break the seam of the outer fabric layer. Brody and Jeremy then play some sort of tag/dodgeball game where they try to tag each other by throwing a ball at each other. They then team up and peg Jaren with balls.
