Celebrating 40 Years of Service to the Oakland Community

For four decades, the East Oakland Youth Development Center (EOYDC) has provided children, youth and young adults (ages 5-24) with the tools and training necessary to become responsible citizens and dynamic leaders. With your support, young people are able to develop through a vast range of high-quality programming spanning arts, wellness, education, and careers.

As a part of our work-based learning program, we employ students in EOYDC's functional roles. In fact, 50% of our staff are program alumni. This practice creates a cascading mentorship model that allows students to hone and exercise leadership skills, while gaining work experience a greater sense of community.

Looking ahead, EOYDC will mark 40 years of service to the community in 2018. As we anticipate this incredible milestone, we will continue to empower our families and build resilience, leadership, and sustainable skills for success in our youth.
