Ujima Youth Program

Ujima: The principle of collective work & responsibility

Pass the truth to the next generation. Teach them early what we learn late.

The Ujima youth program combines elements of leadership, academic achievement, culture awareness, and self-care. We assist adolescents to find their agency, develop a growth mindset, learn avenues for career aspirations while being given the space to explore!

The Father’s Group offers weekly fun, nurturing, and engaging environment for students to grow and learn after school. Ujima curriculum helps inspire important life skills and instill confidence, fostered by caring volunteers and educators. Classes convene every Wednesday at the District Education Center downtown Bend. 3:00-5:00 pm
