ECOS® culminated its year-long 50th anniversary celebration Saturday night as the presenting sponsor of the All It Takes® annual fundraiser for its youth leadership programs. The “Lasting Legacy” reception and dinner under the stars was held at our headquarters in Orange County, California.

All It Takes Youth Leadership Programs teach young people to create sustainable, positive change among their peers, family members, society and the environment through onsite school programming and overnight trainings. “Our programs teach young people at a critical life stage to practice empathy, compassion, responsibility and purpose to create sustainable, positive change in school, at home and in their communities,” said Lori Woodley.

“All It Takes and ECOS share the same goal of creating bold and compassionate leaders for the next generation who will help create a safer, greener planet,” said Kelly Vlahakis-Hanks. “Last year I sent my daughter and her Girl Scout Troop to the All It Takes camp in Malibu, California, where they had amazing, life-changing experiences,” she added. “They came away with greater confidence and more empathy for themselves, each other, their families and our environment.”

Lori Woodley, who founded All It Takes with her daughter Shailene Woodley, said, “ECOS embodies everything All It Takes believes our future can be, if the next generation can learn to look out for and care for one another.”
