Riverside Youth Opportunity Center (YOC)
The City’s Youth Opportunity Center (YOC) provides a one-stop shop
for Riverside youth to obtain job and social skill development
that will lead to successful job placement.
Located at Bobby Bonds Park (2060 University Avenue), the center
focuses on providing youth between the ages of 14 – 22 with the
skills necessary to obtain living wage jobs that will allow them
to independently provide for themselves and their future
families and to become positive influences within the community.
Programs and services presented at the YOC will be offered
through a collaborative effort between the City, school
district, colleges and universities, private sector businesses
and community-based organizations. For a listing of the YOC’s
classes and events, contact 826-2272 or visit
