Summer Cultural Enrichment Program
Every day the EOYDC staff watch transformations of young people from careless to thoughtful, from spontaneous youth to planners, understanding the consequence of their actions and the importance of preventive behavior. We are all so proud to view success and true leadership in action on so many levels in our young people. Also, to the Friends of the EOYDC, we the staff thank you for your continued support in the day by day transformation of young people – our most precious resource!
Since this is a summer youth leadership program, we felt that it would be appropriate to have youth engaged in all aspects of the program. We have added four new classes: Fashion, Spanish, Dance and Music. A list of available classes can be found below. All classes are taught entirely by youth instructors!
