Mission Statement

"Wellness--Connecting Life changing Opportunities with People in Need." To help provide a platform for Youth, Women and People with "diverse-abilities" and change their hobbies into careers.

Description

THE EIGHT believes in a world in which ALL people are treated with respect and dignity, as well as valued and rewarded fairly for their skills, talents and labor.

We also believe in the extraordinary power of the arts and technology as a unifying language of communication and a vehicle of integration for organic learning and creative entrepreneurship.

The Eight logo reflects the 8 dimensions of Wellness as a wheel. The wellness wheel shows how the dimensions work together. Like a bike wheel, if all of the spokes or dimensions are functioning at optimal levels, the wheel rolls along smoothly. If however, one of the spokes or dimensions becomes weak or if the tire loses air, the wheel will run off course.

All of The Eight programs/aspects and activities are part of the whole--they are integrated, creative efforts that put forth a cohesive, community effort that not only educate and fights poverty but obesity and disease as well. The Eight is a "Wellness Hub"--it is multi-dimensional and holistic, encompassing occupational, intellectual, social, financial, physical, emotional, the environment and spiritual well-being.
