Our Mission

Escalon is translated “a plan to escalate” and is used to describe the hope for children to escalate out of poverty and brokenness. Our students attend school and live on the Plan Escalon campus. Students also receive job skill training and micro-business opportunities such as: glass etching, managing a bakery, growing a private label coffee, and operating two small retail stores. To learn new skills and potentially generate income for his/her family, each student is equipped with hands-on experience and challenged to open a business within the community.

Escalon is translated “a plan to escalate” and is used to describe the hope for children to escalate out of poverty and brokenness.
