Our programming is focused on the 6-12th grade students of the Cleveland Metropolitan School District in Cleveland, Ohio. We serve around 400 students total during the academic year and growing in the 2017-2018 school year, and proudly work on behalf of our students even when school is not in session.
Here are our programs:
A 1-hour discussion series in schools across Northeast Ohio predominately in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District for 6-12th graders. A specific design, where Volunteer Speakers partner together to discuss with small groups of students about topics relating to social justice such as Exploring Power & Privilege, Education, Health, Money, Community Relationships, Race & Justice and more. EYEJ’s Curriculum team provides speakers with a “speaker doc” that serves as a guide of the dedicated topic and discussion. Discussions are a favorite with both students and speakers. It provides an open and safe environment to have an honest discussion, develop critical thinking skills and foster new ideas for change. Focused on social/emotional learning.
The EYEJ Impact 25 Youth Council will start in November 2017, where 19 youth ages 15-25 from all across Cleveland will come together to brainstorm issues, injustices and challenges they face, and their community faces. Together they will create recommendations for solutions for these issues to present to Chief Williams of the Cleveland Police and all of it’s Commanders in each District and the Cleveland Indians in 2018. This will be a paid opportunity for the youth, and more information will be coming out both on the EYEJ web site and the Positive Changes Newsletter sometime between September & October 2017 regarding the opportunity to apply for the Council.
In partnership with the Partnership for Safer Cleveland and made possible by the Larry Doby Fund.
