Our youth in Cleveland are facing many injustices and experience toxic stress on a consistent basis. 100% of our students want to see positive change in a variety of areas from education to their environment to safety. Our programs—including the Discussion Series, EYEJ Impact 25 Youth Council, and DiscussSocialJustice. com—help empower our students by providing platforms to cultivate change. Furthermore, our volunteers are inspired to create change themselves.
HOW CAN YOU CREATE CHANGE
Investment in EYEJ is an investment in our youth. We discuss important subjects with students that are key to their life skills and successfully approaching everyday challenges they face. For example, over 50% of our youth are faced with being actively recruited by gangs, almost all know someone who has been a victim of a crime using a gun, and almost all have known someone who is incarcerated. Thus, the stresses of everyday life are significant. Your investment in EYEJ will help us serve these at-risk students.
No matter who you are, your background, or your means… you can make an impact on youth!
