East Oakland Youth Development Center

East Oakland Youth Development Center “Tomorrow holds few promises without promising youth… We owe them today; they will lead us tomorrow.” - Regina G. Jackson, President & CEO, EOYDC

In May of 1973, the EAST OAKLAND YOUTH DEVELOPMENT CENTER (EOYDC) was founded by Robert B. Shetterly, former Chairman of the Board and CEO of The Clorox Company. His vision was of an urban community center where young people could grow and thrive. Since opening its’ door in 1978, the EOYDC has continued that legacy by becoming a national model for community-based nonprofit agencies. We have continued to be dedicated to equipping youth and young adults (with special attention to those of East Oakland) with the skills, training, and values they need to become responsible citizens and to assume dynamic leadership positions. The Center has served more than 30,000 children, adolescents, young adults, and parents from East Oakland and throughout the City. Our free comprehensive core programs Physical Development, After School Art, and Project J.O.Y. (Job Opportunities for Youth), are coordinated to meet the clients’ emotional, physical, intellectual and economic needs. In 1983 the East Oakland Youth Development Foundation Board (EOYDCF) was created with the primary responsibility to raise money for the Center and provide fiscal oversight for the EOYDC Endowment Fund. The 8-12 Foundation members are financial and management executives of Fortune 500 companies. They are personally committed to reaching their goal of raising $16MM in endowment contributions. When that goal is reached, the normal allocation of 5% of the accrued interest would cover the annual budget, which would preclude the need for additional fundraising programs. The Center’s multi-functional facility is located in East Oakland’s Elmhurst District, which of course makes this the primary service area. While we are continuously trying to identify important opportunities to be “A Part of the Solution” for the youth living in this vital community, we welcome all of the Bay Areas’ youth and families to participate in the services and/or programs offered at the EOYDC. We offer an unforgettable, positive, and safe experience for the youth of Oakland.

"Getting to explore new roles and exciting characters is all a part of the magic of acting to me! I may have one life that I live, but I get to deep dive into the lives and perspectives of the people that I share this world with and that enables me to have compassion for all. We don't all have to agree, but we have to take the time to hear each other out and validate the various experiences that have shaped us. I only hope and pray that I can be a part of bringing more of our stories to the forefront."

EOYDC Post. It was 1984 and I was participating in training for the soon to be open Burger King at Eastmont Mall. Singer Bernard Wright (RIP) came out and sung his hit song Who Do You Love to us and signed albums.
EOYDC adds joy to teaching it's young students, especially ones that demonstrate they are unafraid to fail, and keep showing up with a personal commitment to excellence.
Hate doesn’t promote growth. Love your mission. But you have a team member who is promoting hate and divide. Please help them see color isn’t always the reason to deepen the divide. Not all “white” are white. (Great grand daughter of a Nigerian slave). Sad that her hate of my “skin color” seemed to support her belief and prejudices of me. Yet she doesn’t know me. Or those she chooses to bully. This is not how we should lead our diverse youth.
