WHAT YOUTH ADVOCATES ARE SAYING!
“You all helped my kids create success, a rare event in most of their lives. An event that has left its mark not only on them but all the folks who experienced the “plays” the kids wrote...”
- Richard DesRosiers, Superintendent, Marin County Juvenile Hall
"Our staff are very appreciative of the amazing mentoring, therapeitic, educational and drama-based programming you provide for our youth in the Juvenile Justice Center's high security boy's unit. EORO has helped our youth build self esteem and problem solving skills."
- Toni Powell, Director, Juvenile Justice Center
"Over the last ten years, I have watched as EORO programs have positively influenced the juvenile justice system's punitive-based approach toward incarcerated kids in the San Francisco Bay Area."
-Wayne D. Cook, Artists in Schools Program Specialist, California Arts Council
"Over the years, I have seen many detention-based programs and recommend Each One Reach One as one that stands out from the rest in its unique format, one-on-one attention given to the youth, and the effective use of the creative arts to empower troubled youth people to self-reflect with positive outcomes and imagine a better future."“Our students who participated in the program gained not only academic, writing and logic experience abut also a deep and personal sense of success and pride. That experience enhances the work we do daily to improve and solidify self-esteem and confidence.”
- Larry Rodgers, Director, Alternative Education, Pilarcitos High School
“These kids were publicly honored for who they are as individuals, and through the experience of creating their stories, each one of them was able to become more in touch with the hope in who they want to become.”
- Judith Saeks Gable, LCSW, Cleo Eulau Center
"As the Program Coordinator of Beahavioral Health Services Special Programs for Youth (SPY) for the City and County of San Francisco Department of Public Health, I have had the pleasure of working with Each One Reach One since they first started coming to the San Francisco Juvenile Justice Center in 1998. I have watched the program grow and evolve from a primarily theater arts program to an education program. The work that Each One Reach One has done with San Francisco’s most serious offenders is to be commended and recognized because of the impact it has not only on the youth, but the maximum-security unit as a whole."
