How We Help Improve the World

EP2 seeks to improve the quality of life for urban children/youth and their families through empowerment strategies that enhance knowledge and critical thinking skills, clarify values, and create viable priorities for productive living. In addition to working with families and communities, EP2 must engage service providers and members of the general public in accomplishing its mission. EP2 accepts tax-free monetary donations and in-kind contributions in support of its programs.

HEALTH

Summer Camp

Program offerings include: academics in reading and math; coding; STEM Program; and health and nutrition segments. A healthy lunch and snacks are also provided and accommodations are made for children with special diets. Physical fitness and recreational components include: swimming and other physical movement exercises; urban gardening; trips to educational sites within D.C. and entrepreneurial activities. In addition, a parent/family orientation is a key component of the program. This includes a survey of family health checks for parents on various topics.

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

Live Book Reading

Marietta Collins, PhD, is a clinical psychologist who has worked with high-risk children, adolescents, and families as a faculty member at Emory University School of Medicine for over two decades. During our 2020 Virtual Summer Camp, Dr. Collins conducted a live reading of a book she co-authored entitled, Something Happened in our Town: A Child's Story about Racial Injustice. The students were engaged, developed numerous questions related to injustice, and they also received a free copy of the book.
