Our goal is to foster social flourishing by providing a sense of belonging and affirming identity for Black college students.
A program designed to empower and uplift BIPOC LGBTQ+ young adults by connecting them with mentors, coaches and mental health therapists who can provide guidance, support, resources and overall support for emotional well-being. Our therapists, coaches, and social workers are focused on the specific challenges faced by black students within the queer community and aim to address their unique concerns.

Homegoing Trips offer an integral component to the holistic success of tomorrow's Black leaders: a deeper understanding of their ancestral land, Africa. This continent, often misrepresented and exploited by the media, reveals its true beauty, culture, and resilience during these educational trips, aiding in the development of students' racial identity.
During these 8-10 day journeys, students broaden their perspective of Africa, sparking an interest in their lineage. They encounter Africa as it truly is: vibrant, culturally rich, diverse, and resilient. This experience helps them 'come home' to themselves, promoting their social and emotional growth.
These trips, spanning various age ranges (18-65), inspire intergenerational connections and dialogues. Through this heritage awareness and racial identity development, students are empowered to impact their families and communities positively. Daily debriefings from trip leaders will help process the trip's evolving insights, while keepsake photography and personal accounts enable them to share their learnings within their community. This enriching experience serves as a springboard for exploring their roots, fostering a deeper understanding of their heritage for generations to come.
Ethiopia is the only country in Africa that was never colonized. This is an important spot on the continent to visit. With its own calendar, practices, and language, Ethiopia is a rare taste of life and culture left untainted for thousands of years. We will begin in Addis Ababa. We will stay at the bed and breakfast of a local woman, where we will also gain more knowledge about the culture. We will have day trips to Debre Zeit and the Blue Nile Falls. Before we leave, we will enjoy the cultural dinner theater experience, where locals perform dances and songs from different regions.
From there, we will travel southwest with a local guide to the Omo Region. With stops along the way, we will have the opportunity to interact with and learn more about the tribes of the South Omo Valley.
