The Boro Association for the Education of Young Children, more commonly known as Boro EYC, may not have many meetings in a semester, but it certainly has a lot going on.

Boro EYC is the early childhood club on campus. The club promotes the education of all children.

Although the club has been around for many years, it was inactive for a period of time. In the last three years, the club has seemingly redesigned itself with hopes of being “better than ever.”

Club President, Steph Stevenson, said that the club members only meet about twice a semester.

This semester, the first meeting will take place on Feb. 24 at 7:30 p.m. in Butterfield 200.

This night is also Dr. Seuss night. At this event, the club will have games, food and movies as they celebrate Dr. Seuss’ life and work.

In addition, this will be an opportunity to learn more about the club.

“When you join, you get to meet other educators who have the same goals. We also have a mentoring program to get you acclimated with the education program here at Edinboro,” Stevenson said.

Currently, the club has about 20 members, but more people are welcome to join. There are no dues for the club.

Boro EYC has various author nights, fundraisers, and they attend a national conference each year. This year, the conference is in California.

“I have gotten so much out of this club. I went to the conference and got many supplemental materials. It is great to work with a group of people to help educate children,” said Stevenson.

The club is doing a fundraiser at Five Below in Erie from March 20-26, and 10 percent of each purchase goes to the club. You only have to bring a flyer with you or tell the cashier you are shopping on behalf of Boro EYC.
