EORO diverts incarcerated and probationary youth from a life in prison to become productive community members through mentor based arts,health, and academic tutoring programs. Youth have the right to learn from mistakes, and should be encouraged to take responsibility for building a better future.
Since 1998, EORO has remained dedicated to its mission to divert incarcerated youth from a life in prison to become productive community members through mentor-based performing arts and academic tutoring programs, serving over 1,850 youth and engaging over 3,500 community members. EORO was founded as an arts advocacy organization to divert incarcerated youth and youth on probation from a life in prison. EORO’s roots were planted in the exploration of theater-based strategies that could effectively break the cycle of violence and divert youth, particularly young men of color, from the adult prison system. Once the organization began working inside detention facilities in the San Francisco Bay Area, EORO saw that while the power of the arts was critical for these young people, that there was a larger need for services for these youth - academic educational support and so we created the GED Testing and Academic Tutoring weekly study hall programs inside detention facilities for youth. in San Mateoand San Francisco counties to assist them on the path to becoming successful adults and in breaking the cycle of violence that entraps so many of their peers by connecting them to their communities through the transformative power of the arts and education.
