Frankie J. Woods II

Founder/Executive Director

Frankie J. Woods II is the Executive Director of Future Development Youth Center. Founded on March 28, 2014, Future Development Youth Center (FDYC) is a community-based 501(c)(3) whose mission provides mentoring for educational & career development of youth ages 12-19. FDYC serves historically marginalized, socio- economically underfunded & underserved communities in order to support youth in reaching their full potential as educated & highly skilled technical artists.

As a result of growing up as a troubled youth and experiencing the positive effects of having access to youth centers, as well as having the opportunities to use the media arts as an outlet, Frankie was compelled to find ways to give back. He started with football coaching and mentoring, and as he developed his own media arts skills at Cosumnes River College’s Film Production Program, at Sacramento City College’s Small Business Management and Entrepreneurship Program, and at LA Recording School’s Associate of Science Degree in Audio Production Program, he began to formulate the idea for FDYC.

In six years, Frankie has taken FDYC from a concept to a multi grant award winning program, each year expanding the organization’s services and range of youth served. He is now ready to lead it into the next era of helping our youth.
