A lifelong youth advocate and educator and third-generation Berkeley native, Bob Kaneko was deeply committed to investing in the community he called home and its young people. During his time as a counselor and teacher with Berkeley Unified School District, Bob helped co-found the Berkeley Asian Youth Center, the original organization from which EBAYC evolved. Bob served on the Board of EBAYC from 1980 until 2001, and continued to be a guiding force in our mission and vision to provide a safe, supportive space for youth. We are grateful for Bob’s leadership, and we are proud to build upon his legacy through our work today.
