Educating Young Minds (EYM), a leader in supplemental education in the greater Los Angeles area for more than 33 years, is now expanding its online platform Access/No Excuse (ANE) nationally thanks to a $175,000 grant from Amazon Studios. With the onset of COVID-19 and subsequent shutdowns, EYM had to transition its full suite of services to a virtual model, now offering tutoring, computer tech programs, early learner’ interactive curriculum, counseling, mentoring and community resources for at-risk youth and families in need.

“During this unprecedented and uncertain time of COVID-19, confusion and fear, children nationwide who attend online public schools are learning less and falling further behind,” said EYM CEO & Founder Angeles Echols. “We’re proud to benefit from Amazon Studios’ ‘children and families first’ philosophy and are excited to further our partnership and ensure that parents with limited resources across the country receive what they need and what all our children deserve.”

EYM’s partnership with Amazon Studios will substantially increase EYM’s outreach, strengthen its technological infrastructure and assist EYM in providing the educational and technological resources which students need to grow and learn.

“There is nothing that makes us prouder than supporting our community, and investing in the students that will become the change agents of tomorrow," said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. "We are thrilled to support Educating Young Minds, and its incredible founder Angeles Echols.”

As reported by the Society for Research in Child Development, results of a survey conducted in April with parents in Texas, New York, California, and Washington show that one in five Black parents received little to no information from their school about remote learning resources during the pandemic. Responses from a survey conducted in March show that 25% of Black youth connected with teachers less than once per week.

Amazon Studios works to amplify underrepresented voices and empower diverse communities both onscreen and off. Through its ongoing partnership with EYM, Amazon Studios has hosted Amazon’s Virtual Career Day for EYM high school students with employees of diverse leadership skills and backgrounds encouraging EYM students and families as they addressed educational inequalities during this unprecedented and ongoing crisis. Additionally, Amazon Studios donated over 300 books to support their students through remote and virtual learning, and provided workshops from constitutional law to the creative arts.

In honor of Black History Month and to celebrate EYM’s curriculum expansion, Amazon Studios’ legal department hosted a virtual discussion with students around Civil Rights. The interactive celebration enlightened all who attended.
