Founder’s Bio

 Tristan Blake

Tristan Blake is a passionate advocate for children’s education. He founded the Education Association for Kids in Need (EAKIN) in 2018, with the mission of providing educational opportunities to underserved and underprivileged youth. Tristan was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, where he attended public school and graduated from UCLA with a degree in Education.

Tristan has always been passionate about education and helping others. After college, he worked as an elementary school teacher for several years before deciding to pursue his dream of creating an organization that would provide educational opportunities to those who needed it most. With this goal in mind, Tristan founded EAKIN with the help of several friends and family members.

Since its inception, EAKIN has grown into a successful non-profit organization that provides educational resources to thousands of students across the United States. The organization offers after-school programs, tutoring services, mentorship programs, college readiness courses, and more. Through these initiatives, Tristan hopes to bridge the gap between underserved communities and quality education.

In addition to his work with EAKIN, Tristan is also an active member of his local community. He volunteers at homeless shelters and food banks, and is a regular speaker at local schools. He also serves on the board of directors for several non-profit organizations.

Tristan’s commitment to education and social justice has earned him recognition from numerous organizations, including the Los Angeles Times, which named him one of their “Heroes of Education” in 2020. He is an inspiring example of how one person can make a difference in the lives of many.
