BACKGROUND INFO:

With the theme of “Oakanda: From East Oakland to West Africa,” this exciting event will blend the playful spirit of Comic-Con with the glitz and glamor of a gala. On a hot Saturday night in August, five hundred people will gather at The Bridge Yard in Oakland to support the Pathway to College program. Sponsor-branded activation areas will invite high-energy interactive and immersive participation. No big long tables to squeeze through: there’s space to move. DJ. Dancing. Craft cocktails, champagne, small bites, small plates, and starters.

Our goal is to raise $300,000 to help students matriculate into, fund, and successfully graduate from college or credentialed vocational training programs. Since 2015, EOYDC has provided more than $500k in scholarship funds to over 200 students. Last year, we provided over $150k in scholarship funds alone and we are looking to match or surpass that in 2022! In 2021, 100% of high school seniors participating in EOYDC's Pathway to College and Career (PTC2) program graduated high school on time with 93% enrolling in college or a vocational training program within 3 months of high school graduation, a track record we have proudly maintained since 2012.

What you can do: You can purchase tickets, make a donation, and/or become an event sponsor! Sponsorships are currently available at every level, starting with our Title Sponsorship, Vibranium Level ($25,000), scaling down to Bronze Level ($2,500).

At EOYDC, young people have a safe, welcoming, supportive place to create a future that includes enriching education and a meaningful career. We may not have the Wakanda-level tech to land a spaceship in a corner lot…yet! But we can and do land kids in college–with support from folks like you. At EOYDC, that is NOT just a fairytale for kids from Oakland. It is real.

The mission of EOYDC is to develop the social and leadership capacities of youth and young adults (ages 5-24) so that they achieve excellence in education, career, and service to their communities.

EOYDC is a nonprofit 501c3 organization - Tax I.D. # 23-7334590.
