greet him at the airbase. this is a secure airbase, as you said, very tight security, given the gravity of the summit about to get under way, the media circus that has gathered here, about 3,000 journalists expected there in singapore. the president is walking towards what we believe to be the foreign minister of singapore. he is greeting some diplomats on the ground. we know accompanying him on air force was the secretary of state, mike pompeo, as well as the chief of staff, john kelly, and national security adviser, john bolton. we should underscore, he is there with the president to advise him. and he has been, of course, very central to some of the on/off nature of this diplomacy because of some words he used to
describe what he saw as a model for disarming north korea. he referred to a libya model and that, of course, led to outcry from the north koreans with concerns that perhaps president trump would be looking to oust him from power. the president walking towards the armored vehicle he will be driving in to go to his hotel. and as jeff told you, this is the farthest kim jung-un has traveled since coming to power back in 2011. he is only around 34 years old. it is pretty tremendous to think he is going to be sitting down with the president of the united states for this historic summit. ben tracy, we know, is also our correspondent there on the ground, on the tarmac at the airport. ben, good morning to you. and i should point out, this is an airbase. this is not the commercial airport that kim jung-un landed at. why is that significant? >> reporter: exactly.
yeah, a couple of hours ago, we saw kim jung-un land at the main airport you would fly into in singapore if you were coming here as a tourist. president, although has flown into this airbase. obviously, that has something to do with security. it also has something to do with the fact that there is a major undertaking that goes along here to move the president of the unitthis is a fairly low-key on. you saw him walk down the stairs, shake a couple of hands. we believe, as you megzed, the foreign minister of singapore was in that group. the president is in the limousine, to go to the shangri-la hotel where he will be staying here. this is old hat for the profit united states. he flies around the world all the time on air force one. but for kim jung-un to travel this far today, this is the furthest he has ever traveled as the leader of north korea and the furthest by far. his only other two trips outside of his country were to china, one on a train and one a short
flight, and we should include the third trip to south korea back in april. we are seeing history unfold. not only are these two leaders going to sit down with each other-- who would have thought that a year ago at at the time kim jung-un was launching intercontinental ballistic missiles and they were trading rhetoric back and forth. >> the diplomacy is fascinating to watch there, ben. i should note, the president was asked as he got off the plane how he was feeling about the summit. he said very good. there will be much more coverage of the summit on your local news, on this cbs station on cbsn, and later this morning on "face the nation"." our guest will include president obama's national security adviser and ambassador to the u.n., susan rice. massachusetts senator ed markey. white house economic director, larry kudlo, and former independent counsel, ken starr.
jeff glor is heading up our coverage from singapore and he will have a report this evening on the "cbs weekend news" and will anchor the "cbs evening news" livem sre tomorrow and tuesday. i'm margaret brennan my father died when i was 1 by gun violence. this affects me, being brought into this situation. so i wanted to shed light on that. they are not the only ones being affected by this. every day we have to go to school in this neighborhood. that was a golden opportunity. >> in my introduction, i talk about the possibilities that you bring as a young person.
you are activating that right now. thank you for being with us. we will hear more from you. thank you, regina, for all of the work that you do. you been called to do this. and you have the calling. thank you for all of you do and we are going to hear more about the program in the next segment. please join us with regina jackson and jade a white of the east oakland youth development center. this the new future of san francisco. and now, we are bringing you these breathtaking views, thanks to our exclusive salesforce tower cams. >> four different cameras on top of the tallest building west of the mississippi river. >> capture the changing beauty of the area. expect original coverage from
kpix 5 news. expect more. hirteen hundred hours. my math class, room 302, was in the trenches. davy roth had it the worst. fractions were coming at him left and right. he just didn't get the damn things. two days ago, i tried to teach him what 1/4 of 1/2 was using different sizes of blocks. yesterday, i tried again by dividing up pizza. both missions failed. rachel: oh no. sam: but today...i was ready. sam: i created a combat math game where the only way to beat the enemy is to out-fraction them. davy conquered every last denominator. my game was so successful, the principal is deploying it to math squadrons all over the school. rachel: wow! sam: anyhoo, how was your day? rachel: oh, uhh... today my boss treated the office to salad wraps. sam: mmm, salad wraps. rachel: i know.
welcome back to "mosaic." i'm ron swisher. i mentioned to regina earlier that my first ministry began in 1972 at elmhurst united methodist church, down the street from the east oakland youth development center. therefore, when i read some of their history to see if they were still around, i was just so excited to see that. she has been director since 1994. tell us a bit about the program, regina. >> we are really building leadership capacities of young people, as young as kindergartners, and through into adulthood. one of the things that we try to do is teach them an appreciation for education and taking risks. these days, just learning to
read is taking risks. but c defines our lives. we are seeing prisons built based on who can read at the third grade level. we are putting odds in their favor for them to succeed. and when you t to see 13-year- olds like jade who get to demonstrate real energy and passion for life, we want to help them protect that. we are located in a challenged area but we keep trying to teach them through opportunity and exposure to put the odds in their favor and prepare them for success. we are getting ready to start another summer program. it's entirely youth led. young people like jade a are in leadership positions. our young people are learning to write curriculum, teach classes, and supervise young people. because you give them the opportunity to lead, and the training, then they understand the responsibility. and that puts them ahead of the class every time.
>> i'm a big reader, i read hundreds of books for years for many years. it's a passion of mine. why do you think it's so important? >> well, reading starts everything. you are able to speak more fluidly, more thoughtfully, when you can read. you are able to write as well. it's really important that young people know how to think. that they are thoughtful in their thinking. it helps them to resolve conflict and problem solve. these are not the kinds of curriculum being shared in schools these days. but when they walk out the door, they've got to solve some problems. when they get to school, they've got to resolve conflict. literacy really provides the foundation for that. the other stuff is that they can learn about themselves and the world. they can travel through reading. often times when our young people might not get outside of their zip code, reading unlocks
the world for them and teaches them their own history. it's just amazing. data has been involved in one of our book club set has been so substantial in helping them create their own personal libraries. and for young people, particularly in middle school, sometimes they tend to drop off of those more disciplined activities. so to get them reengaged as they get ready for high school, it puts the odds of college and being a lifelong learner in your favor. >> i love reading but i can never say it quite like that. fantastic. inspiring. data, i understand that you might want to be a journalist. where does that passion come from? >> i have always been literary based. my family is literary based. but i think my passion for journalism is bringing real news, to real people and communities, and bringing a
taste of culture to somebody that does not have that culture. or somebody who does not have that trustworthiness to some people. journalism does that. >> what is your course in school to do that? >> i wish to go to a four year school. somewhere in l.a., or the bay. but next year, i'm going to be a freshman at the oakland school for the literary arts and i want to major in journalism or english literature or something like that. my schools are nyu, columbia, usc, ucla. >> are these some of the better schools? >> yes, they are. >> so you've done your homework. >> yes. a goal without a plan is just a
dream. >> okay, i like that. >> this is 13. >> i love what 13 looks like. [ laughter ] >> you told me that you just came back and spoke with somebody graduating from the program who just got their phd. >> yes, sir. >> tell us about that. >> back in 2003 i created the college pathways to clear. we realized that we had a ged program and afterschool program, but we did not have anything that allowed people to access how to get into college and prep for it. so that was really important. a young woman by the name of dr. howard was on our very first college tour in 2005. so, as an oakland high school student, i remembered that we used to race to the post office to beat the mid-light -- midnight deadline to go to
college's. she got into uc berkeley, still the number one public institution. at the time, nobody in her family had even graduated high school, so this was a big leap. we had gone to look at columbia where she also got in. she decided, i'm going to stay closer to home. but after that, she did domestic change while at cal. she did study abroad. that's when she decided to shift her goal from being a pediatric doctor to a phd focused on social welfare. >> so you put a lot of emphasis on service. >> yes. she is the quintessential example of what we try to do. she graduated with her phd from a top-five school at university of wisconsin, madison. by the way, she took 2 years off to go work at the obama administration. she's a fatin -- fantastic
welcome back to "mosaic." during the break, i had mentioned that -- well, before the break, jade had mentioned a number of schools. i mentioned that i went to usf, which is a pretty good school. regina jackson just announced that she received an honorary doctrine. >> yes, i did. >> tell us about that. >> some folks at usf, one of the professors met with me and said i think you have an extraordinary body of work and i would like for us to try to put your name in.
and i said, okay. so i put together a binder of all of the things i've done over the last 20 years. and i was told i think around february of 2016 that i would receive the honorary doctorate and i would be able to deliver the commencement address. >> what an honor. >> i was so excited, and so honored. it turns out that one of my own kids from eoydc was going to be in the graduating class. that gave me all that i needed. dr. joseph marshall who is on the board of trustees, a respected colleague, was also very excited for me. it was one of the top 10 experiences of my life. you know, to have my parents and my children there. supporters from the community. it has been amazing. and we have had kids historically go to usf. and so, it was just a turning
point in my life. >> do you remember what you are focused on in that commencement address? >> service. i talked about taking risks. i talked about following my path , the calling. i talked about some of the success stories, and many of the responsibilities. because usf says that they are building the future from there. i may be misdirecting the theme. but the whole point is, you have to get ready for what it is you are going to do, and who it is you are going to be. i wanted to talk about real life examples, and how much they can make change. i did not know that they could actually go into this field when i was in college. and it haen the most incredible and sustaining work i could ever imagine and is the only reason i have been in it this long.
it speaks for itself. >> somebody said that you have to have some glue. and you can see that we can do that. >> i'm a little stick of dynamite. >> we can see that. and jada, tell us about the march. >> i wrote a reflection about the march. and, i remember including how crowded and cold it was. we were the only black teenagers that we saw at the march. >> there were thousands of people there. >> there were thousands of people. we were trying to say hello because it is so rare to see that in the crowd. so we were the only big group of black teenagers that i saw during the march.
which i thought in a way was empowering but i wish that we were more involved and driven to end gun violence. and you often see the brotherhood that we lack in urban communities. >> how many are in your delegation? >> i think nine. >> good. i understand that you introduced everyone. >> yes, one of my biggest accomplishments. we were invited by congresswoman barbara lee to go to a moderated conversation with michelle obama. and while we are taking a picture, there was a big group of women that was talking to michelle obama. and i said we are from the east youth development center and recently we were taken to march for our lives. and she said, okay, tell me more, tell me more.
so we went off of that. i had to include that i'm the youngest one. because, you know. but, that was a really powerful moment for me. >> that's great. you put a lot of emphasis on leadership development. how does that develop? how does that go? >> well, i remember that a young person told me that because i expected her to succeed, she did. no one had ever communicated that to her. we see that early and often. we provide exposures so that we can see a world outside of what they know. and give them opportunities that make them thirsty and hungry for these empowering experiences. we give them the opportunity to write what they like, draw what they like, do whatever it is they feel so that they are empowered. >> and you travel? >> we travel. that in my opinion is the best
way to learn about your self and others. when we talk about colleges, which one is going to be the right one for you? i oftentimes want our young people to come out of their comfort zone because that's where i feel the biggest growth is. so i dared them to go outside of their geographic area. across the country. to the south, to the east, to the north. so they can understand people. our young people are so busy on their text messages and phones they don't know how to talk to each other. >> i understand you are going to mexico? >> we are going to be leading a service mission to mexico in august, thanks to the benevolence of southwest airlines who sponsors all of our tours. i thought it was important, in the midst of the challenges we are having today, and the lack of support form mexico -- for mexico and immigrants, particularly people of color,
to go to mexico and build a landscape, but also do some service. they are still deciding what it is they want to do. whether it is murals, dances, making food. >> drama, cooking. >> everything we do at the center, we like to lift up. and they will be designing t- shirts. the roof is the limit. >> we have the last segment with us. i went to come back to exactly where you are located. >> thank you. and the sky is the limit. you said the roof. >> please join us for our last segment with regina and jada.
east oakland youth development center is celebrating their 40th anniversary, and we've been blessed to have the director here, regina jackson, and one of the students, jada white. tell us where you are located, and a website. >> sure. so our website is eoydc.org. we are located at 8200 international boulevard in oakland, california, 94621. our phone number is 510-569- 8088.
>> and you live pretty close to it, don't you, regina? >> i'm always in east oakland. >> all the time. that's fantastic. in our conversations, you mentioned that not only are you a warriors fan, what has steph curry done for you? >> he has done so many things for the organization, for the families. when he got his first mvp award in 2015, he gave us his nba kia. we used that car to drive around to meetings. he has invited our family too many christmas celebrations. most recently about last month, we opened up for him to do a media satellite day. he was shooting around with the kids. and of course that was a highlight of their lives. >> how did he touch base with you guys? >> we have been fortunately receiving donations for many years from the warriors. i believe he learned about our
work because of our character building. our entire organization. every curriculum we have is really about building character. we know the steph aligns with that, both from a religious base, as well as a personal base. and so i think that's how we made it to the top of the list and he was able to select from that list. >> do you have the last word for us? >> east oakland youth development center, the best center. >> that is fantastic. both of you have been just great to be on the program. and i want to thank troy for making the contacts. >> we appreciate the opportunity. have us back again. >> i sure will. thank you for joining us this morning. i know you've been inspired and enlightened by these two young women and all of the work that they do. continue to keep the work and
