EACEF Chapters operate at colleges and high schools across America. Each EACEF Chapter functions dually as a youth social engagement initiative to get young people involved in social action, as well as a fundraising source for EACEF educational priorities in East Africa. Through these chapters, we want to inspire young people to become social activists – to fight for change for people all over the world.
Many youth have the ability to affect such change using their special talents; oftentimes they just don't have the know-how or the resources. By joining an EACEF Chapter, students will have access to both step-by-step guidelines and the personal support of the National EACEF organization (comprised of the original founders and additional supporters who have graduated from under the Chapter model).
EACEF was founded by high school students at The Westminster Schools in Atlanta, GA. Now that the founders have graduated, EACEF at Westminster operates as a flagship chapter, acting in a pivotal role as a central resource center and successful philanthropic model for other students across the nation.

To find out if there is already a Chapter of EACEF on your campus, look below to search for your school and contact its leaders about joining opportunities. For schools where we don't have Chapters, students can contact Alexis Mitchell for information on how to start a new branch on campus. Other information guidelines and additional resources are also available at Start a Chapter.
