MISSION OF THE EAST SIDE SPIRIT AND PRIDE
The mission of the club is to assist students of East Los Angeles College to satisfactorily realize their full potential in successfully transferring to four year universities of their choice. The East Side Spirit and Pride Club also hopes to establish an irrevocable sense of pride and delight in the school and in the surrounding, greater community, focusing on East Los Angeles.

PARTNERSHIP WITH HOMEBOY INDUSTRIES
In 2010, East Side Spirit and Pride partnered up with Father Greg Boyle and Homeboy Industries in an attempt to reach out to the surrounding community. Professor Dennis Sanchez teaches a class called Bridge to College at Homeboy Industries on a routine basis in addition to having ESSP members tutor members of Homeboy Industry. In addition he takes members from Homeboy Industries on tours to East Los Angeles College and other colleges in the Los Angeles area. As a result, many students from Homeboy Industry have enrolled at East Los Angeles College and other community colleges in the greater Los Angeles area. Proceeds from the ESSP Annual Scholarship Dinner and its lunch and golf tournament go to fund educational scholarships and grants for members of Homeboy Industries and other at-risk members of the community.
