EDMO Equity Programs

When you choose EDMO™, you choose great for your child and good for the world. Our non-profit status, community partnerships and high-quality programs allow us to create equity opportunities like no other organization in our field. As a provider of STEAM & SEL focused enrichment programs since 2004, we know what the research says. Our summer camp and school year programs set kids up to succeed in school and life. That’s why we have social responsibility to make our programs accessible to ALL kids.

Through our EDMO™ Equity Program efforts, we subsidized $1,303,698 worth of services in the 2016-17 school year and 2017 summer to underserved kids, schools, and families.
