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.

A final Note from our Very Own
Ms. Regina Jackson:

EOYDC, you are my heart. The staff, the youth, and my partners in this labor of love,
You have become my family.

My last act as Captain of this ship, is to leave you in the most capable of hands. It has been my life's pleasure to know and serve you. Thank you, I will never be far away.

Continue the Mission.

“I love the investigation aspect of my job, when determining who or what caused the car accident. I also enjoy doing field work, which involves scene investigations, meeting in person with injured parties and discussing their injuries and treatment in further detail, attending court appearances and assisting my insured’s with their court cases and at times speaking before the judge and giving testimony. I also enjoy negotiating bodily injury settlements with attorneys. My line of work definitely keeps me busy, but also fulfilled, as I wake up each morning excited to start my work day!”

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.
