ECCLA welcomed the first inaugural school liaison class on Thursday, March 3rd, 2011 at the Kick-off event which took place at
24th Street Theatre from 4-6pm.
The kick-off event was the perfect way to welcome our 22 participating schools into the program. There were over 50 people in attendance including Liaisons, Principals, Local Resource Providers and ECCLA Board Members and Staff.
The newly designated school liaisons and their principals had the opportunity to network amongst each other as well as take part in the mini resource fair with some of the local providers in attendance including
California Science Center, Mouth Saint Mary’s College, Natural History Museum, the and our venue host, University of Southern California 24th Street Theatre.

representatives brief attendants on current programs and resources.
Interactive icebreakers, and small breakout sessions to discuss the challenges each school faces and what types of resources the school is lacking were a great way to create consensus on how to make this program most successful and beneficial for all those involved.
