The East Oakland Youth Development Center has been a great part of my past and will always be a part of my future. The Center provided me with a place that I could come to and not have to worry about violence or drama.
I came to the Center in the summer of 2004. I wanted to be a youth leader because I loved working with children. That summer I got the job and I was able to learn a lot of things, that helped me get where I am today. I learned to have patience and to let things come to me instead of being so anxious. I also learned a lot of reading and writing skills which helped me a lot in school. I graduated in January of this year and I am now enrolled in Merritt College. I am planning on becoming a registered nurse.
I love the East Oakland Youth Development Center and will continue to use the services it provides for today’s youth.
