Empowering the Next Generation

EMCC is ensuring youth have the skills to succeed in school and life as well as understanding their responsibility to better themselves and their community. At EMCC they will be provided instruction, support and resources they need to develop and master skills that will ensure they are kindergarten ready, academically strong and college bound. They will also have opportunities to discover their gifts and talents in three focus areas of the Center: STEM, Arts & Culture/Humanities, and health promotion.
