Today's youth face many challenges on their journey through adolescence and transition into adulthood. At Journie, we know that our youth are smart, creative, and curious. We see their limitless potential and aim to provide them with the skills and resources to envision and attain their ideal future. Journie is unique in its provision of high-quality, ongoing mentorship in addition to needs-based education and interactive learned experience. Our staff at Journie are culturally competent and can provide life skills based off lived experience.
Journie focuses not only on personal development, but on building a supportive, vibrant and engaged community for our young people where they can be naturally expressive in a safe, non-judgmental space.
"Journie wasn’t just some after school program for me. It was a family that was all about self-betterment, self-consciousness, education, and being your true authentic self. Journie gave me the confidence boost to think outside the box, to be the better version of me, and to be a definition of Black Excellence.”
