Ashland Youth Center Project

The Ashland Youth Center (AYC) is part of Alameda County Health's Children & Youth Initiatives' strategy to support the development of youth hubs that offer a continuum of comprehensive support services to youth and their families in key geographic regions in Alameda County. During the Eden Area Livability Initiative (EALI) process, a youth group conducted a needs assessment with other teens and identified the need for a youth center to provide recreation, social, health and economic opportunities for youth in the area. In April 2008, community residents and partners selected the Ashland Youth Center (AYC) as one their top five priorities. Youth have a pivotal role in making the youth center a reality and they will remain at the forefront of its development. The AYC is uniquely positioned to address adolescent health disparities through its comprehensive model and multi-stakeholder involvement. The 31,500 square foot facility, which is scheduled to be completed at the end of 2012, will house high quality and innovative programs and services in the following areas: Health & Wellness, Recreation, Employment Training & Job Placement, Arts & Culture, and Education.
