Relationships begin with our youth programming, encouraging positive self- image and self- esteem, and encouraging our young people to stay on the right track, do the right thing and focus on education. Volunteers act as role models and big brothers and big sisters, reflecting the beauty and worth of each child.
Our Dream Path provides a pathway out of poverty. Consisting of our Family and Teen Mentoring, Alternative Education and Education Advocacy, the focus of the Dream Path is relationships, walking in solidarity with families, helping them overcome the many hurdles that poverty present to a child’s academic success.
The Ubuntu Center is a place of peace, love and hospitality. Coffee is on every morning at 9:30 and people are welcome to come and sit and have a bite to eat. As volunteer power allows, we offer mornings of reflection, yoga and meditation, and hope in the near future to support efforts towards justice with our Ubuntu Movement. We have a peace chapel that is open to whoever has a need for some quiet space. The Ubuntu Center is an oasis in the midst of an often-violent area. It is now home to all Join Hands programs, a resource for our families and children, and those in the neighborhood, as well as home to our administrative offices.
