LITTLE ROCK, ARK. (October 12, 2012) –More than 100 high schools in six states will host an annual “EAST Night Out” on Tuesday, October 16, in communities with EAST programs. EAST students will demonstrate a sample of the technology, community work, and service provided through their projects. The event is open to the public and is designed to inform the community about the accomplishments of local EAST programs.

 

EAST is an educational model that provides innovative ways of learning for modern students. EAST focuses on student-driven service projects accomplished using sophisticated technology.

 

Annually, EAST students contribute more than 1.5 million service hours to communities, which conservatively translates into an economic impact of more than $15 million.

 

EAST students use the skills and tools necessary to fill the pipeline for entrepreneurial thinking, STEM, and civic leadership. “EAST Night Out is a celebration of student service and creativity. Students and communities get to share the best of education and to see the true promise for our future” says Matt Dozier, President and CEO of The EAST Initiative.
