ECOC makes meaningful impacts on youth and provides educational and leadership opportunities they wouldn't otherwise have.

The Summit provides programming for professionals who interact with youth to address their implicit biases to increase positive outcomes for youth in education, child welfare, and juvenile justice.

The benefits of mindfulness, yoga and meditation should be accessible to all members of our diverse community. This is the goal of Peaceful Warriors. Humans embody all shapes, sizes and ages.

May our efforts bring forth a resilient, peaceful community.
