The Chinatown Youth Center Initiative (CYCI) evolved from a core group of dedicated collaborative agencies, most of which were originally a part of the API Community Response Plan (CRP). The members of the CYCI worked tirelessly to plan and lay the foundation to develop the youth center. The process of developing The Spot has truly been a team effort through the collaboration and commitment of our community members and youth. For the past three years, the CYCI has been under the direction and guidance of a Planning Committee and the Youth Advisory Council, now known as the Oakland Youth Empowering Advocates (OYEAs). Past and present members of the OYEAs can be found here. The following are core members of the Planning Committee who have represented their organizations as a part of the CYCI collaborative:

Isami Arifuku – Director of Research, National Council on Crime and Delinquency
Jennifer Lee – Deputy Director of Operations, Asian Health Services
Clifford Yee – Program Coordinator (formerly), Asian Health Services
Jidan Koon – Organizational Planning & Training Consultant
Caroline Glesmann – Research Associate, National Council on Crime and Delinquency
Michael Lok – Research Associate, National Council on Crime and Delinquency
