The EAST Initiative began in a single classroom of at-risk high school students and has expanded to serve more than 20,000 students annually, from elementary to college. The team will assist in conducting focus groups with stakeholders at elementary school EAST programs to better understand the unique opportunities and challenges of technology-focused, project-based learning at this age. The students will identify best practices that can be replicated throughout all of our elementary EAST programs.
Mission Statement: The EAST Initiative provides all learners with the opportunity to have relevant, individualized, life-changing educational experiences.
“We could not ask for better partners than the practicum students at the Clinton School of Public Service. We’ve seen tremendous things happening in our elementary school EAST programs and the opportunity to gain original insights from these bright, dedicated scholars will be of tremendous value to EAST’s mission of providing educational opportunities to all learners.” – Matt Dozier, President and CEO of the EAST Initiative
