EPACENTER’s Advisory Council members serve as our core community leadership body, providing us with a critical perspective while championing our mission and vision. Our Advisory Council is comprised of diverse individuals from East Palo Alto – both youth and adults.
Youth Advisory Council (2019 – 2020)
Jules Lyons (President)
Judge Cantrell (Vice-President)
Parents’ Advisory Council (2019 – 2020)
“It makes a world of difference that East Palo Alto community members and youth have been involved in creating EPACENTER from the beginning. We’re used to people and organizations coming in and saying, ‘This is what we’re going to do’ without inviting the community. Because we’ve been involved from the start, we feel invested and trusted.”
– Jennifer Lyons, Community Member, EPACENTER Student Parent, Advisory Council Member
