Ethan Berry, Inc. Nonprofit was founded by Ethan Berry in 2005 after working in the technology industry for over 10 years. Working my way through college at Marin Juvenile Hall (located in Marin County California) and Lions Gate Lock Down Facility for Youth (located in Martinez California) as well as working for West America Bank as an technician monitoring one of the very first ATM Systems and Electronics Technician on campus at Sonoma State University (both in California); I developed a keen understanding of what it took for me to be successful in life.
I often compared what I witnessed as a youth growing up in the two different worlds I lived in as 1) thriving in a academic environment vs. 2) growing up in a low income to middle class neighborhood. I often counseled youth at the juvenile hall and lock down facility I worked at on doing better in their life through getting a good education. It often came down to one thing, children model what they see around them the most! The environment they are exposed to at home, at school and in their neighborhood determines so much in their lives. Children who don’t have positive role models exposed to them often end up broken citizens. Not always, but often, children in economically distressed neighborhoods need to be exposed to the life skills and education tools which will help them be successful in their life, to become a full citizen juxtaposed to a broken citizen.
I realized my community had the Omegas Boys Club started by one man in the community (Filmore Graham), gyms opened up by one man in the community (Vigil Tilly), concerned parents and teachers. Something that most of the children in the juvenile hall and lock down facility I worked at did not have. I purposed it in my mind to somehow, some way, give back to the community of kids which were not exposed to the things I was exposed to in my community, at my k - 12 schools, in my home and within my neighborhood. When I was able to, I started Ethan Berry, Inc. Nonprofit to be a positive influence for children, especially in economically distressed neighborhoods, so they can get the life skills they need to be successful in their life through mentoring and tutoring programs in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM).
It’s been a labor of love every since! The nonprofit team has grown beyond me for our mentoring and tutoring programs since the beginning and we continue to help as many children and young adults as we can.
