Programs and Services

Youth Development Workshops

  • Dynamic youth development workshops designed to inspire and equip young minds with essential life skills. Our workshops provide a supportive environment where youth can explore their potential, build resilience, and develop the confidence to pursue their dreams. Through interactive activities and discussions, participants learn crucial skills such as goal setting, communication, leadership, and problem-solving. 
  • Topics also include self-care, emotional intelligence, and navigating challenges unique to their experiences. Whether it's through art, storytelling, or team-building exercises, our workshops empower youth to become resilient, self-assured leaders in their communities.

Community Engagement - "Amplifying the Voices of Pregnant and Postpartum Black Women"

  • This project focuses on the experiences of Black women during pregnancy and up to one year after giving birth. We want to understand their experiences with prenatal and postpartum care, health behaviors like breastfeeding and stress management, and the services they receive, such as home visiting and housing assistance. By focusing on the entire system of care, we aim to address health disparities and pursue equity.
  • Our goal is to change how healthcare systems engage with Black women and their families, address health behaviors, and improve the quality and quantity of services offered. By amplifying Black women's voices, we can advocate for policies that improve health outcomes and contribute to knowledge that enhances Black women's health.
  • We have created a welcoming and safe space for Black women to share their experiences. Through listening sessions, we will listen, learn, understand, and improve based on their perspectives. Participants will receive a thank-you gift for their time and contribution. We plan to partner with community organizations and conduct listening sessions with groups of 4-6 women, aiming to identify common themes and areas of improvement. Our ultimate aim is to develop actionable recommendations within six months of data collection to enhance the quality of care and support for Black women during pregnancy and postpartum. By amplifying the voices of Black women, we strive to create positive change in healthcare systems and improve outcomes for mothers and their babies..
