Eric joined the GRuB team four years ago as a member of our youth crew. He made his way to GRuB after a tumultuous journey wrought with depression, substance abuse, and at times he even wrestled with thoughts of suicide. During his time on the crew, he connect with 19 other powerful youth who helped shape the GRuB School partnership in its pilot year, carving a path for young people throughout Olympia School District to earn credits while doing meaningful work in community for years t come. Through relationships forged at GRuB, Eric tapped into his compassion – for others & for himself – and a sense of purpose. At the end of his first year, his ability to lead was apparent, and he joined GRuB for a second summer as a Peer Crew Lead. After graduating from Olympia High School, Eric took an internship with GRuB and now serves on our Board of Directors. He balances the fullness of life as a student at SPSCC, as a worker, and as one of GRuB’s leaders, bold enough even to share this story at our recent Soirée.
