EOYDC GROUNDBREAKING CEREMONY
October 28, 2013 - Since 1978, The East Oakland Youth Development Center 'EOYDC' has served to foster local, under privileged youth with a community-based program focusing on Arts, Education and Wellness. With more than 300 students weekly and nearly 2,000 participants annually, EOYDC's youth-led mentoring program is the community's most visible and active youth services hub. At present, the current building cannot accommodate more than 30 youth at one time, with exception to the gymnasium, prohibiting the organization's potential to grow alongside the populations it serves.
EOYDC's master plan will add 5,294 square feet of space to accommodate the growth of this vital community program. The new construction will include upgrades and renovations to increase energy efficiency throughout the building, and create additional multipurpose rooms for increase flexibility in programming and participant numbers. The landscape features will serve to both beautify and create a sense of security for the improved facility.
The Groundbreaking has begun with occupancy of the completed campus anticipated to begin the Fall of 2014.
