East Bay Asian Youth Center:
Addressing Violence and Trauma with Southeast Asian Young Men
“Inspiring young people to be lifelong builders of a just society.”
East Bay Asian Youth Center supports youth to be lifelong builders of a just and compassionate multicultural society. Focusing on Southeast Asian young men who have experienced trauma, the Center works to support their social and emotional development through intensive outreach to high-risk juvenile offenders and their parents/caregivers. The Center also provides comprehensive case management support to each youth, connects routinely with teachers and administrators to monitor academic progress, works with probation officers to promote compliance with probation conditions, and offers therapeutic activity groups to engage youth in addressing the impact of trauma on their lives.
