Description of Agency:

Epic Center Community Organization (ECCO) started programming in the winter of 2012 as a community organization that offers a safe and structured environment for youth within the Milwaukee area. Every day millions of youth leave school with nowhere to go, leaving them vulnerable to destructive activities. ECCO is a direct response to the neighborhood residents that seek educational and recreational programs for the community. The community can unite as one given the right services, direction, and support in which we can all benefit from each other.

Student Role at Agency:

The After School Youth Leader leads groups of 10-15 in daily educational and recreational activities. This position works with youth from the surrounding areas of Clarke Square, Silver City, Burnham Park, and Layton Park.
