Our Mission: To enrich the lives of African youth in America.

Our Vision: Guiding the Journey envisions a future in which underserved African youth in America and everywhere in the world, are equipped with the tools, resources, and opportunities to access higher education.

We are the leading community organization that provides educational and cultural enrichment and youth development programs to underserved African immigrant youth in the Washington, D.C., metro area.

Our highly dedicated staff and Board deliver specialized workshops, cultural enrichment programming, and life skills development for students.

Our goal is to provide a nurturing environment and culturally sensitive guidance so that each child we serve will be a contributing member of his or her community. Our programs currently serve students in the Washington D.C. area including Northern Virginia, who represent more 6 different African ethnicities.

Guiding the Journey is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization registered with the IRS.
