echoingU of Southwest Ohio

In Southwest Ohio, echoingU has been welcoming students since 2012. Our up-to four-year program saw its first graduates in 2016 and we’ve been growing both in the building and in the community. We partner with many local businesses and organizations, including the Dayton Metroparks, Dayton Dragons, Sinclair Community College, and the Humane Society of Greater Dayton.

echoingU was created in response to the lack of options for young adults—there was a huge need for a place to build additional skills and to grow personally and professionally. echoingU differs from other programs because we are committed to the local community. Our staff creates opportunities for students to be actively engaged and participate in community through educational experiences and investigation of student’s interests. Some of these opportunities include touring local businesses, parks, museums, and libraries, speaking with business professionals, and volunteering with other organizations and nonprofits. echoingU Dayton partners with 24 volunteer sites where students can practice applying the skills learned in the classroom, while serving the community. Over 8,700 volunteer hours have been logged by our students since our program began in 2012, and that number continues to grow.

Henry, former echoingU Student

No program that I have seen in the past really emphasizes only hiring sincere, kind, and Godly people to work for them. At echoingU, they helped me open my eyes on a wider level. They always go the extra mile for me by trying to put themselves in my shoes.
