"The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice." - MLK
"Democracy has to be born anew every generation, and education is its midwife." - John Dewey
EEC provides schools & communities with the tools they need to powerfully invite their students into becoming engaged citizens with visions and aspirations for change-making.
EEC programming integrates the power of art, story-telling, and the individuals' moral imagination.
Projects are designed to follow students' curiosity and/or interest and aliveness around an issue/problem. By following this issue/problem students increase their civic knowledge and skills while developing their own citizen conscience of individuals with agency, voices and capacity to be effective, intrinsically empowered citizens.
