Students at We Day

On Tuesday, November 3rd, East Central sent a group of students to the We Day program held at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.

We Day and its dynamic, yearlong educational program, We Schools, work together to empower youth to be drivers of social change.

At the heart of We Day and We Schools is the belief that when we act together, we can transform the world.

Sometimes, people don’t act because they’re unaware of the issues and don’t feel connected to the lives affected. Other times, people don’t act because they feel overwhelmed – they wonder how they could possibly make a meaningful difference.

Our model of youth empowerment challenges young people to act with intention, and lead with compassion and the conviction that together we can transform lives locally and globally.

We help young people understand the issues and how they can help, provide them with the tools to take action, and connect them to like-minded change-makers, creating a global community where together WE change the world.

Students Collect Winter Clothing

East Central’s National Honor Society organized a winter gear collection for individuals in the school and community in need of warm winter gear.  After the one week collection, there was a total of 215 items donated.   Items donated included winter coats, snow pants, hats, mittens, boots, and scarves.   All items collected by the National Honor Society will be donated to the Teal Street Clothing Closet that hosted a winter coat give away.  

Pictured are National Honor Society members Katie Nelson, Gabriela Villarreal, Morgan Johnson, and Levi Eich presenting the winter gear to Donna Wichner who is in charge of the winter coat give away.
