Evelyn is eager to be returning as a Camp Director for the original HUB site in East Oakland. Over the past four summers, Evelyn has been leading Camp EDMO™ at both Reach and Korematsu Elementary schools. She was born in Veracruz, Mexico, and raised in East Oakland. Evelyn is genuinely thankful that Camp EDMO™ is serving our kids in this community at no cost. Her passion for change in her community has allowed her to be part of this amazing camp where children are able to do science projects, art projects, learn about who they are, but most importantly leave with a smile and wanting to return every summer. During the school year, Evelyn works for the Oakland Unified School district where she holds various roles at an elementary school. In her spare time, she enjoys going salsa dancing, eating tacos and doing Zumba!
“I can’t wait to be dancing and cheering with all the EDEMOdnians and the amazing staff that supports me every summer at Oakland HUB. Don’t forget your dancing shoes, REACH Academy!” – Evelyn Herrera, OHUB REACH Academy Camp Director
