Welcome to EOTO.
EOTO is the University of Alternative Learning
It is not a physical place, but a new way of thinking.
It is an innovative movement of dedicated groups of people who will help us to create
opportunities and enable positive, long-term changes in the lives of young people.
We work with inspiring individuals to give young people new skills to increase their
confidence and improve their chances in life. We provide a fresh approach to addressing
these problems and believe in the potential of every young person.
- "The funding has enabled us to get the makerversity project off the ground by providing the funds we needed to purchase the big items of equipment. They have also been fantastic in connecting us into the wider movement that Each One Teach One is building and we are proud to be part of the collective."
- "The funding from Each One Teach One is enabling Chats Palace to work with young adults in the community interested in music (whether in planning, production or performance) and suffering from social or educational exclusion. Recent research has shown that there are not enough activities or opportunities in our community for young people and with this grant not only are we able to offer a space for young people to set up and run their own music nights once a month; to gain skills and experience in an arts setting and but it also offers other young people in the community a safe space to socialise and perform. The grant has also enabled Chats Palace to develop relationships with other local and national organisations, and local professionals in the music industry keen to work with the young people and support them in the project and beyond."
- “Ben Drew’s support has empowered us and lifted our organisation into the new era – where our society must fight a tsunami of child and adolescent mental health and employment problems. EOTO is more like an active partner than a funder - it feels as if we have become part of a new movement for disadvantaged young people.”
