The Village Has Built A Platform Focused On Mentoring

We envision building healthy generational and community legacies

Lifting up the community

The Village’s mission is to proactively identify needs of the underserved by fostering positive relationships that connect families & communities.

Facilitating healthy youth & family development

The Village is designed to build a proactive support network around youth & families.


The Village is more than a program, it’s an inter-generational community that is composed of new and existing community resources (e.g., programs, services, adult mentors, churches, local businesses, non-profits, etc.) that are then integrated and repositioned to build a local support network around the youth and their families.

There are three main areas in which The Village focuses its programming, mentoring, family development, and community engagement.

Be the change. Build the community and support our future.
