Currently we provide wide range of services to the African Immigrant/Refugee population through the following FOUR programs:

Serving an average of over 400 individuals a year, the Economic Self-Sufficiency Program provides services including job placement, job training, financial literacy and micro-business development.

2). Community Organizing Program (COP) -
Serving over 150 individuals a year, the Community Organizing Program works for a systemic change to reduce/eliminate racism through advocacy, education and organizing the African community around issues.

3). Better Health Alertness Program (BHAP) -
Reaching close to 150 individuals annually, the Better Health Alertness Program researches and educates African families about the hazards of tobacco, alcohol, drug abuse, HIV/AIDS and other diseases that are threats to economic self-sufficiency.

4). Youth Enrichment Program (YEP) -
Serving 50 youth and young adults annually, the youth enrichment program addresses the problems that African young adults face as they try to make a life in MN after long absences from formal school. The program provides a comprehensive career solution for African young adults which includes intensive case management, GED referral and preparation, job skill training (nursing assistant), life skill and leadership development training, computer training and job and/or college placement.

YEP also provides advocacy and community organizing around the issue of "School Age Policy"and its effects on African young people.
