Are you an organization, group, church, social club or synagogue?
COMMUNITY GROUP PARTNERSHIPS
We partner with multiple groups to get involved in our Discussion Series that range in size from 2 to 30+ people. We will provide customized training to have your group be Speakers and/or Coordinators, leading discussions on social justice related topics with kids in grades 6-12. Your team can join the conversation and help EYEJ reach the youth of Cleveland! It’s easy, fun and engaging. Anyone can do it!

UNIVERSITY INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
The EYEJ University Internship Program allows students from around Cleveland to participate in the EYEJ Discussion Series for a four month position! Interns will participate in lively discussions with Cleveland youth, by helping to facilitate and manage them. You’ll also keep the conversation going online by reflecting what you learned afterwards through social media and blogging. Depending on the university, funding may be available.

Are you a company that encourages team building and involvement in the community?
EYEJ; Empowering Youth, Exploring Justice is partnering with some of Cleveland’s top companies for the school year 2018-2019. By partnering with us, you can become part of the solution for the toxic emotional stress that faces our Cleveland area youth. We offer partnership at three levels. For $5,000 you would partner on one of our monthly topics within CMSD and other schools. There would be another partner at the $5,000 level. Both companies would be recognized in our written materials, as well, as webpage and social media. There are eight topics which vary from Toxic Stress, to Health & Healthy Eating, to Finance & Entrepreneurship. At the $10,000 level, your company would be the sole partner for a topic and be recognized as such. Finally, at the $25,000 level, you would partner to sponsor and entire school receiving our programming. In addition to financial sponsorship, you may be interested in your employees volunteering for our student discussions. No experience is necessary, and we will train your employees, however if your company has expertise in particular topics, we will utilize those skills.
Your financial support is key, helping us to reach as many students as we can. Consider the Discussion Series as a team bonding event. EYEJ will coordinate and train volunteers and if your company has expertise in certain topic areas, we’re happy to partner to align content with our curriculum team. As a partner, you will be recognized through EYEJ’s network, including email and digital marketing platforms. We would also welcome you to provide signage and media outreach to promote our partnership. Finally, you will be recognized at our end of the year reflection events. This is a 2 hour commitment for employees (if this is chosen for employees to get involved), plus lunch afterwards with EYEJ and your entire group to reflect on your experience.
