We are pleased to announce two Alumna are joining our executive team.

Selena Wilson joined our team as a practitioner from Deloitte Consulting where she served

as a management consultant for the Organizational Transformation and Talent division within

the Human Capital Consulting practice. Selena also brings several years of experience in

elementary school enrichment programming with the City of Piedmont and facilitation/training

with the National Leadership Institute.

Selena attended Castlemont High School in Oakland and is also an alumna. She joined

at the young age of four years old to take West African dance class.  She stayed with the

organization throughout her life, working in just about every capacity – from an administrative

assistant to a youth computer instructor. Selena recognizes as the nurturing space that

allowed her to transcend the difficult circumstances she faced growing up in a neighborhood

plagued by violence. This transformational experience is what inspired her to dedicate her life

to youth development.

Selena graduated from Northwestern University with a Master of Science in Learning and

Organizational Change, and received her BA in Human Services from Holy Names University.

In addition to her work with EOYDC, Selena currently serves as a Board member and volunteer
