Mrs. Echols-Brown joins LaFern and discusses how EYM empowers students, parents, teachers, and counselors across the world. Educating Young Minds is a rich and diverse supplemental learning environment where students are encouraged to grow academically, emotionally and socially. EYM grew out of the needs of many students and families for additional education and counseling, which over-stressed public schools could not meet. EYM’s programs include: after school tutorial, home study instruction, weekend remedial, SAT/ACT exam prep, and college scholarship program. Create the opportunities and good things will happen. Angeles Echols-Brown doesn’t know roadblocks or obstacles. As the Founder, CEO and visionary behind Educating Young Minds (EYM), Ms. Echols-Brown recently pulled together for the first-time a massive three-day weekend entertainment and educational extravaganza for “her kids.” “Her kids” are college students, young adults, high school students and students as young as nine years of age who participated in life changing high-tech exhibits, educational workshops, career opportunities, met role models and celebrities and even participated in an international tele-conference with India and Africa. The worldwide weekend celebration began by recognizing the explosive internet evolution. EYM showcased its new cutting-edge interactive website “Access/No Excuse” during a special reception at its corporate offices. “Access/No Excuse” is a state-of-the-art interactive online academic and career development search engine. EYM officials said “Access/No Excuse” will help further expand the reach and vision of EYM’s programs and at the same time address academic, vocational and outreach opportunities for students worldwide.

And 10 years later, the message continues to resonate. Response to the PSAs in 2001 was unprecedented - the media donated $100 million in time and space in the first year, and Americans around the world voiced their support for such an important and timely message.
