About Us

E.A.S.T. Youth Center believes we can all change and affect the future of all children for the better.

Overview

E.A.S.T. depends on our volunteers, your donations, and our sponsors to help us serve our campers at no cost to their families. E.A.S.T. began summer programming for children with and without disabilities from the Greater Brockton Area in 2015.

All of what we have accomplished thus far has been achieved solely by donations and sponsorships received from great people, foundations, and businesses who believe in our mission to change the world one child at a time. E.A.S.T. Youth Center needs all the help and support we can get, so please read through our website to see how you can help!

Education

E.A.S.T. believes in continuing education and learning throughout the summer. E.A.S.T. employs a summer learning teacher to run curriculum based activities with our campers. Every week, campers do math, science, reading, and writing activities that are both enriching and fun!

Nutrition

For the past two years, E.A.S.T. has collaborated with Project Bread who has provided E.A.S.T. campers with free breakfast and lunch. Both meals are carefully selected by a nutritionist and consist of a dairy, fruit or vegetable, and grain. Meals are prepared locally in Brockton and are shipped daily to camp.

Local Partnerships

E.A.S.T. believes in working with other local organizations and non-profits to better provide programming for our service area. We want to take this opportunity to thank our two biggest partnerships in Brockton!

Simply put, E.A.S.T. is for everyone.

1.Adequately and exceptionally serve children with special needs and disabilities.

2.Provide programming that is cost effective to our families.

3.Create an accepting and inclusive environment for all children.

4.Improve social skills and foster friendships among children in collaborative and innovative ways.

5.Make learning fun!

Supporting Organizations

E.A.S.T. is able to provide programming because of the generous donations of foundations, businesses, and individuals who believe in our mission. It is with these donations that we are able to expand and serve more children and add more programs and activities for our campers.
