Education for Engaged Activism (EEC) uses the power of art and story to help youth to become culturally literate,

and to develop their own citizen identity that will serve them throughout their lives.

WE do this by finding out what they care about most.

 

EEC provides classes, schools and communities with exciting materials, spaces and environments that support youth

 in the development of necessary citizen; knowledge, tools, skills and dispositions.

EEC programs are designed to immerse and engage youth in relevant issues with the goal of them becoming solutionaries.

 

Through EEC programming youth will:

  • Learn about a broad range of current issues and problems.

  • All EEC programs are issue/problem based inquiry, within the framework of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

  • Greatly expand their vocabulary and understanding of the language of engaged citizens.

  • Will explore and understand the necessary character qualities and values of citizens.

Will have an realistic sense of what it might take to be effective changemakers in their own right.

ABOUT

“Our deepest calling is to grow into our own authentic self-hood, whether or not it conforms to some image

of who we ought to be. As we do so, we will not only find the joy that every human being seeks--

we will also find our path of authentic service in the world.”     ― Parker J. Palmer
