Children and Youth Services:
Working Towards a Brighter Future.
EECM programs reach out to young people to help them discover – and work toward – a more promising future. A variety of programs help children and youth succeed in school, explore new interests, set personal and career goals, and shun the destructive forces that are all too common in their world.
IN-SCHOOL / AFTER-SCHOOL OUTREACH programs provide academic support, recreational activities, life skills training, career development, and intensive intervention for elementary, middle, and high school students.
EXTRAORDINARY TUTORING is an after-school program that provides one-on-one support for students from kindergarten through 12th grade. Each week, students meet with tutors for help with particular subjects or skill areas.
