We were so busy picking up after closing we forgot to say THANK YOU! We hope all our students, educators, guests and sponsors enjoyed #EASTcon18 and are traveling or have traveled safely back home. We're already planning #EASTcon19 and look forward to seeing logo submissions when that first competition of next year's conference opens. Keep an eye out here and on our website for details coming in April.

There are not enough great things that I can say about this program. I was lucky enough to get a chance to be in my school's first year with it with Mr. Mills as the facilitator. It gave me the skills... and confidence to achieve so much. I would love to come back to it one day and make a difference in other students' education and lives! See More

EAST have made me a better person. As a student, helping the community or teachers or people who need help, and i'm able to help them with the technology that we have. The EAST people makes sure all s...chools are having a blast. EAST has let me get up in front of people and talk and not be scared and shy to meet new people. See More

As an EAST facilitator, I am a fortunate person to be working in the EAST environment with high school students, watching them grow and learn to become productive young people. Through student work in... the community; they learn to give of themselves and teach themselves in ways not available in our typical educational classrooms. They learn to go forth and do great things! This is all made possible by the staff at the EAST Initiative with their great support of the program to the facilitators and most importantly, their support to our students. See More

I've served in many roles at EAST: student, staff, and alumnus. Every role has given me the most inspiring moments of my life. To be able to see the work that these students do every day is amazing. EAST students change the world every day, and they show no sign of slowing down. See More

I was only in EAST for a year, but I loved every minute! I discovered that I have natural leadership abilities, and learned how to use those to my advantage and to the advantage of those around me. EA...ST Initiative brought out the best in me. Just wish I had been in EAST for a longer amount of time. See More

EAST is an organization that inspires a new way of thinking while impacting the community around it. EAST brings to light skills that students don't know they possess and shows them that with just a l...ittle hard work anything is possible. See More
