Help the staff to keep the youth mentally & physically active.

During this time when volunteers are not able to bring the usual variety of activities & attention, the kids are truly bored. Staff would truly appreciate our help to keep the youth positively engaged.
Here's the Pandemic Wishlist: https://www.echoglen.org/pandemic/
You can purchase from the Amazon wishlist & have them delivered directly to Echo Glen or you can drop off between 7:30 AM - 3:30 PM Mon-Fri. There is someone at the gate during these times doing wellness checks on arriving staff. Thank you for your generosity in supporting these kids who can demonstrate their potential with our help in providing the opportunities!

Mission Statement

We are a 100% volunteer community that exists with the sole purpose of helping the youth at Echo Glen Juvenile Detention Center, who have so much untapped potential, to REWRITE THE SCRIPTS OF THEIR LIVES.

Description

We help these teens gain self-esteem by providing essential building blocks for healthy development thus breaking the cycle of neglect and abuse. Our goal is to surround the youth with caring adult role models who give an active listening ear while participating in a wide variety of activities.

Echo Glen is a Washington State juvenile detention facility and a school operated by the Issaquah School District. The facility has approximately 125, male and female, youth in residence, ranging in age from 10 to 20 years old. They come from every part of the state, and all have great untapped potential.

National studies show that 80 to 85 percent of youth in the juvenile justice system have at one time been removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect. This seems to be a continuous cycle-one that Echo Glen staff is determined to break. Nearly all of these young people have dangerously low self-esteem; they crave positive attention from adults and need good role models.

Please join us in supporting these youth!
