About The Village Method
The Village Method seeks to create a united community that is invested in the success of its youth and families. We believe in maximizing the resources within our community, engaging families and empowering children to achieve social, academic and economic success. Focusing on Union City, California and southern Alameda County, we work to overcome the challenges that prevent African American students from achieving their full potential and provide pipeline for students to progress to college, careers and back to their community.
As the African proverb says, “It takes a village to raise a child and a community to keep the parents sane.” We are working to create that village within the San Francisco Bay area by connecting African American youth and families with local businesses, government, cultural institutions, support services and each other.
By forging connections and increasing contact between young people and leaders from across their community, The Village Method helps children understand that they are our most valuable asset. We create an environment where children are engaged in their studies and empowered to excel. Our holistic approach helps young people to succeed through a combination of direct service, coordination of resources and support inside and outside the classroom.
