Relationships, opportunities, and resources that matter for youth and their families.
What We Do
ASAP (Alternative Suspension Accountability Program) – Students who are suspended and expelled can complete their schoolwork at Escape while working towards peace, restoration, and personal growth. Volunteers are integral in working side-by-side with students.
Career Connections – We partner with local businesses, organizations, and donors to create part-time employment opportunities for 14-17 year old youth in the summer and beyond, extending to internships, workshops, and life learning.
Westside Boxing – Whether training for your first fight, or just for fun, our FREE fitness center is open Monday-Friday, 3-6pm. We help kids “break down the barriers one punch at a time.” Training is also offered through WestSide Boxing with certified trainers.
Fun ways you can support ESCAPE
Going on now – Is your yard full of leaves? Running out of time to get them out to the curb for the city pick up? Call us and hire some of our Career Connections youth to do the raking for you.
November 23 – Book drive at the Holland Barnes & Noble. Part of the proceeds from the day’s book sales will be donated to ESCAPE. Start your Christmas shopping early and support ESCAPE at the same time!
December 11th – Join us from 5-8 pm for dinner at Villiage Inn Pizza at 934 Washington Ave, Holland. 15% of what you spend comes back to ESCAPE in support of the mission trip to Mexico. Staff and students will be on hand to talk about ESCAPE and the trip to Mexico.
Our new music studio is now open.
In honor of TJ Wells, who loved music and dance, the TJ Wells Memorial Studio is now open. Do you want to learn to play guitar? Piano? Drums? Or maybe you want to learn about audio production or song writing. We now have the resources to help you! Stop by the office and pick up an application.
