Teen/Young Adult Mentorship Program:
Teens Organizing Productivity (TOP)
is a special youth program offered by Garifuna American Heritage Foundation United. The philosophy behind TOP is the belief
that our inner city youth’s personal identity development can help them excel socially, educationally, and professionally
in various environments. Its mission is to develop, cultivate, and celebrate identity through providing programming that focuses
on personal & professional development, services to society, advocacy on local, national, and international social issues,
college & career preparatory and participating in social events.

After school Program:
The goal of the After School Program is to supplement
education through exposure to diverse cultures, social interactions, and creative development. We will provide homework help,
arts and crafts activities, creative thinking projects, and a unique opportunity to learn Garifuna cultural dance and drumming!

Summer Camp Program:
is a crucial time to keep children and youth engaged and out of the streets. Many parents and guardians work during the day
and are unable to look after their children or utilize learned skills. Without a space for them to continue learning, children
not only lose the advantage of learning new skills, but they also lose some skills they learned throughout the school year.
Summer Camp Program is designed to provide working families with a safe space that nurtures their child’s growing minds.
We use a blend of social, academic and cultural projects and activities to engage and educate youth during summer hours. Our
time will be mainly spent engaged in cultural activities, arts and crafts and going to a neighborhood park to engage in outdoor
activities and exercise.
The program will be open from July to August. For more information,
