The mission of EduCare is to inspire and empower young people to become responsible citizens, compassionate leaders, and to live their dreams. They accomplish this through the sponsorship of afterschool programs, as well as training workshops for youth, educators, and parents. EduCare is one of the largest afterschool program providers in Los Angeles.
EduCare created a new term, HEARTSET®, which is a frame of heart. Most people are familiar with the idea of a mindset- a frame of mind that has a significant correlation to one’s motivation, effort, and approach to life’s challenges. A Growth HEARTSET® is a kindness of heart. It establishes a climate of self-awareness, non-judgment (acceptance), peace, caring, positivity, giving, forgiving, and compassion that allows us to more freely and proactively be a force of good. A Growth HEARTSET® creates a school emotional environment in which EduCare, and the young people they teach, can flourish in spite of the uncertainties and challenges that are so prevalent today.
