Earl Boyles Neighborhood Center

Earl Boyles is a SUN Community School. SUN stands for Schools Uniting Neighborhoods, an initiative through Multnomah County to align and embed resources that cultivate the power of community and neighborhoods. 

Our Neighborhood Center represents all those who take part in community based efforts to elevate student and family voice, integrate stakeholders in decision making, and align supports and resources identified by the school community.

We are a collective of parents, service providers, community organizations, policy and advocacy groups working within the David Douglas School District to support families in their child’s school and in life. Below are the partners and agencies that make up our community school:

Earl Boyles Elementary School
IRCO Housing Program
Children’s Institute
