This Saturday, November 1st, KEXP’s Audioasis Community Partnerships Concert features local hip-hop acts Gifted Gab, Hightek Lowlives, and Nu Era.

East African Community Services prepares King County's East African youth for the future through innovative education and technology programs. Since 2001, they have helped thousands of families in New Holly and across Rainier Valley to thrive in school and the community. The organization focuses on youth through innovative education and technology programs, and also provides adult citizenship and social services to support whole family health.

Five things you can do right now to get involved with East African Community Services:

  3. Follow them on Twitter for updates on monthly networking and cultural events.

“East African Community Services loves KEXP for filing our offices with music from Seattle and around the world and introducing our amazing kids to your community of listeners.” –Faisal Jama, Executive Director, EACS
