About

"Building Character to Build Communities"

EOYDC develops the social and leadership capacities of youth and young adults (ages 6 – 24) so that they are prepared for employment, higher education, and leadership opportunities.

The mission of the East Oakland Youth Development Center is based on solid research which demonstrates that interventions that engage youth from high risk environments in forming relationships with adults, mastering a skill and contributing to their own well-being and that of their community have been found to be highly effective in preventing at-risk behaviors such as dropping out of school, substance abuse, juvenile delinquency and teenage pregnancy. We strive to incorporate as well, the supports and opportunities of relationship building, youth and community involvement and skill building. The EOYDC strives to lessen the risk factors faced by our youth and enhance the protective factors. The EOYDC fulfills this mission by offering educational, cultural, artistic expression and recreation programs that meet the holistic needs of the individual.
