In-School/After-School Outreach

Creation Station | Media and Musical Outreach Program


EECM Creation Station is committed to inspiring and empowering urban youth through creative, performing, and media arts education. Using media and musical outreach programming, youth participants are encouraged to learn to read music, play instruments, and explore various cultures and musical genre.




L5 Program | Elementary Educational Support Program


The L5 Program (Lifting, Learning, Literacy, Life and Love) Elementary Educational Support and Club provides early academic supports, assistance, and intervention to educationally at-risk students through class shadowing, and one-on-one relationship building.




Project Rediscovery | ATOD (Alcohol Tobacco & Other Drugs) Prevention Education


EECM Children & Youth staff passionately work both on school campuses and in out-of-school programs teaching prevention and violence education to young people. We strategically engage kids “where they are” to equip them to be able to reduce, and even resolve, the many negative factors affecting their lives. Drug and alcohol prevention and life-skill education is incorporated into all Children & Youth programs.




Girls Life | Enrichment and Empowerment Program


The goal of Girls Life is to help girls live their best lives by providing them with constructive tools needed to navigate and negotiate today’s society and youth culture. EECM staff serves girls by mentoring, equipping and assisting girls to work toward healthy relationships with self, parents, peers, and adults. We promote positive personal development by teaching life skills, self-regulation skills, education proficiency, anger management, social interaction skills, conflict resolution, communication skills, and promoting respect for self and others in order to plan for immediate and future success.




Take Your Sons and Daughters to Work Day


This program matches middle and high-school students with professionals working in fields in which the students have expressed an interest. Past students have seen what it’s like to run a small business, work in a hospital, and be a physical trainer. ​​​​​​ ​​





 
 

Summer Camp

“We’d go horseback riding and rock climbing and rafting – urban kids like me just don’t have those opportunities normally. I grew up in the East End, and this area can be pretty rough. Day camp was a place where I could come and get focused.”
