The Village

The Village: Our Joy is Powerful


Our vision is of an anti-racist district that works in partnership and shared ownership with caregivers of color, co-creating authentic environments that unleash the capacity of our young people, caregivers, and system.


The Village will contribute to this by:
  • Promoting caregiver of color leadership, centering the program creation and decision-making of these caregivers
  • Creating mechanisms for equity that enable effortless access to resources and two-directional dialogue with structures of power
  • Nurturing communities of belonging that enable healing, the development of trusting relationships, and joy
  • Building on current caregiver skills and capacity, recognizing that these are in support of children’s empowerment, well-being and achievement
In order to benefit young people.


In our shared work towards this mission and vision, we are:
  • Family-centered: putting the needs, values, and perspectives of families at the core of all work
  • Anti-racist: acknowledging that systems, organizations, and structures are racist and actively seeking
  • to dismantle racist practices and behaviors
  • Transparent: providing straightforward information about how The Village operates
  • Respectful: operating with respect for the wisdom and experiences of caregivers of colors
  • Inclusive: intentionally building belonging for all people
  • Joyful: valuing and centering joy
  • Healing-centered: creating safe spaces
  • Strengths-based: acknowledging and building from the assets and knowledge of our caregivers of color
