We’re baaack!

At the peak of Summer 2023, on the evening of Saturday, August 5th, EOYDC’s second annual Black Futures Ball will bring together the Oakland community in a high-energy immersive experience that celebrates the future--our young people.

We’ll open the evening with a catered sit-down banquet dinner honoring our scholarship recipients, followed by a night jam-packed with interactive activation spaces, performances, local vendors on site, a costume contest and much more! Attendees will have the rare experience of interacting with museum exhibits while enjoying craft cocktails, champagne and small bites during this private event.

Trust us, you don’t want to miss this! We’re transforming Chabot Space and Science Center into a portal for expansive futures for Oakland’s youth. Come, dream, and imagine a new world and better future with us - all in an atmosphere centered on joy and fun.
