It takes a village to raise a child.

~ African Proverb

The Village Method

The Village Method connects African American youth and their families with local businesses, government, cultural institutions, and support services, so that they may achieve their full potential. Our programs reach the underserved black youth and families of suburban South Alameda County, creating a holistic cycle where students progress to college, careers, and return to give back to their community.

As the African proverb reminds us, it takes a community working together to give our youth every opportunity they need to succeed. 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.

The Village Method is a nonprofit 501(c)3 grassroots organization dedicated to creating a united community that is invested in the success of its youth and families. We believe in maximizing resources within our community, engaging families and empowering children to achieve social, academic, and economic success.

We cannot create extraordinary social change without the support of our incredible donors, partners, and volunteers. Please contact us to find out more about how you can become a part of our village as we work together to change a child’s world.
