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 www.riversideca.gov/yoc.
