About East Bay Asian Youth Center (EBAYC)
East Bay Asian Youth Center (EBAYC), founded in 1976, is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that was founded in Berkeley by Asian American high school youth who were sons and daughters of Japenese, Chinese and Pilipino immigrants. Its purpose was to build a place where Asian American youth could connect with caring and understanding adults who would affirm their cultural identity and guide their personal growth. In 1988 EBAYC expanded to Oakland to serve Southeast Asian youth in the community and eventually made it permanent move to Oakland in 1997 where the focus and strategy changed from “race” to “place” to serve the diverse needs of the youth population at that time. Today, EBAYC seeks to support youth to be safe, smart and socially responsible and serves a racially and culturally diverse membership of nearly 2,000 youth (51% API, 24% Latino and 21% African American) who reside in Oakland. It is with great pleasure that we partner with Westlake Middle School to continue impacting the lives of young people through providing a strong afterschool program to enrich and enhance the lives of the Warrior Eagle.
