WE LOVE WHAT WE DO
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 (EOYDC) is to develop the social and leadership capacities of youth so that they achieve excellence in education, career, and service to their communities. Our mission is based on solid research which demonstrates that interventions that foster relationships with caring adults, and mastery of technical and social skills, can lead to increased well-being and civic engagement among youth from high risk environments.
EOYDC visualizes a community of empowered youth and young adults with the character skills and network to positively contribute to society.
THEORY OF CHANGE
EOYDC builds the capacities of youth and young adults by leveraging connections to relatable and caring adults. Within these connections EOYDC emphasizes three elements of success, so that program participants may become social ambassadors of positive change in the communities in which they choose to reside.
EOYDC seeks to nurture the development of the social and emotional character of each youth and young adult. EOYDC emphasizes six Pillars of Character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship.
EOYDC works to ensure that each youth and young adult is prepared for a range of opportunities. Readiness areas are – academics, leadership, and employment.
EOYDC seeks to expose youth and young adults to opportunities for personal advancement. EOYDC builds relationships with individuals, industries and other entities that offer exposures to ideas, careers, and opportunities for personal and professional growth.
