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.

Nationwide condemnation is growing over the killing of Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old Black man who was shot dead by two white men in Brunswick, Georgia while jogging in February, in what the family's attorney has called a "modern-day lynching." Earlier this week, shocking video emerged showing the two armed white men shooting and killing Arbery. The video shows the two men, later identified as former police officer Gregory McMichael and his son Travis, waiting to attack Arbery while he was out for an afternoon jog. After a brief confrontation, Travis shot at Arbery three times, fatally wounding him. A friend of theirs filmed the video showing the ambush and killing of Arbery. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣
“The series of events captured in this video confirm what all the evidence indicated prior to its release — Ahmaud Arbery was pursued by three white men that targeted him solely because of his race and murdered him without justification,” said the Arbery family’s attorney, Lee Merritt (@leemerrittesq), on Tuesday. “This is murder.”⁣⁣

Basketball superstar LeBron James (@kingjames) said in a viral tweet Wednesday, "We’re literally hunted EVERYDAY/EVERYTIME we step foot outside the comfort of our homes!" ⁣⁣

While summer programming at EOYDC is going to look different, we are still going to be here for our youth with COVID-19 safe programming options! To this end, we have added a last chance info session for our work-based learning program. We recognize that some paid internships and summer jobs are being cancelled due to the pandemic, so we want to be sure to extend this opportunity to youth who didn't have a chance to apply previously. Spread the word--this is the LAST CHANCE!

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.

We absolutely love this place and everything it stands for. I can't express enough how grateful I am to have found this community while searching for a resource for homework assistance. Within 3 months of my daughters enrollment in the ALSA program, her final math score at the end of the school year DOUBLED! I walked in those doors with education in mind. But what I discovered was art in so many forms, visual, culinary, dance (and more). All of the things that I believe help mold the substance and spirit of a child. The young men and women have such passion in the involvement with these kids and the energy makes you aware that these children have a path to greatness. Each one teach one is surely in place. My daughter did her first camp over the summer and when it was over, I noticed she was not her usually bubbly self while having to wait two more weeks for school to start. After week one I couldn't take her being so mellow any more. I finally asked you miss EOYDC, don't you? And her response was yes! Within days of the new school year starting I was back down there asking about orientation for the new school year and told them this child is about to drive me crazy to come back. The young women at the front desk laughed with cheerfulness and immediately gave me the flyer. I work for a global company that I could relocate anywhere in the world for a job and they asked me just that today. My response was I'm at a point in my life where I can have achieved a lot of my dreams working for Fortune 500 companies and living in different places with my career. At this point in my life her dreams are more of a priority than my own. Her being at EOYDC has me more rooted in this investment that I'm not willing to leave the area.😉
