In 1978 the East Oakland Youth Development Center opened its doors. Its mission was to help disenfranchised young people receive the same training and opportunities as students from wealthier backgrounds. This commitment that the EOYDC made to the residents of East Oakland was a commitment that was first made by its founding father Robert B. Shetterly.
