We're Here to
Making the world a better place.
Since 2008, we have provided programs and services to inspire hope, dreams, and self-determination for the historically underserved communities in Monterey County.
PROGRAMS WE OFFER
THE VILLAGE PROJECT IS A COMMUNITY RESOURCE
MAE C. JOHNSON ACADEMY
We work in unison with educators and specialists in Monterey County to fill an education void that threatens to divert opportunity for students to thrive. We provide tools to re-direct the academic challenges of the past, enabling students to contribute positively to their communities, and mentor generations to come.
"Mae C. Johnson Academy is so near to my heart; not only did this program help me graduate from high school, but it put me in a position to learn and grow towards my career dream of being a teacher. "
- April McMillan, Former Student in After School Academy
In recognizing the profound and painful history of genocide and forced displacement from their ancestral territory, we humbly acknowledge the enduring connection of the diverse Indigenous communities to this sacred land upon which we gather. With deep respect and gratitude, we honor the resilience and cultural richness of the Indigenous peoples who have stewarded this land for generations.
