UNLOCKING THE POWER OF THE SPIRIT OF THE VILLAGE
In everything we do, we bring to life the “Spirit of the Village,” a state of being, a feeling, and a way of life. It’s a journey of friendship, healing and forgiveness, with the purpose of bringing harmony to the human, natural and spiritual community. Our approach is to intentionally combine the caring and nurturing essence of African cultures and traditions with history and social studies through traditional dances, stories, songs and music of Africa.
With guidance from Elders, Griots, Artists, and Knowledge Keepers, we create a caring and open village-like environment where our community, staff, volunteers, partners and collaborators are invited to come together in friendship and enjoy the transmission of traditional knowledge through foundational and meaningful teachings that promote the health and wellbeing of the village.

More than a community, we aim to cultivate lasting friendships, promote participation and community cohesion, and facilitate a better understanding of African cultures within our local community. Most importantly, we want you to feel truly nourished, appreciated, and cared for. Come join our village.
