EOYDC is more than a basketball court or a cooking class. More than a summer camp or computer lab. We’re not daycare providers or afterschool chaperones. We are family: a home away from home; the tough love you need to prepare you for a tough world. An oasis in the desert of inner city life. And, the pathway to a brighter future. Our free programs, which exist because of our supporters, are designed just for you. Our trained staff, in collaboration with your parents and our partners, is committed to developing you. And our community will be better because of you. The power is in your hands so we make sure you are equipped with the essential elements required for life-long success – like good character, self-respect, sense of responsibility, and access to a robust network of people who care about you. We are positive mentors for you so that you learn to be positive mentors for those who will come behind you. We respect your individuality and empower you to rise above everyone’s expectations. We strive to recognize and enhance your unique talents. Here you will gain the skills and confidence needed to excel in the classroom, on the field, on the stage, on the job and, most importantly, in the community.
