Bridging the Gap: Africans & Americans Dialogue

Vitendo4Africa provides a forum for discussion of common issues, aspirations, and solutions for the advancement of individuals and groups from the African immigrant community in Missouri. Vitendo 4 Africa exists to provide immigrant and refugee families with direct services and interconnected resources to improve their quality of life. We work with community leaders to promote unity and community integration with other communities in the region. We are partnering with The Links Inc. Missouri chapter and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority to address misconceptions between African immigrants and African Americans.

We host a Building Momentum Speakers Series to provide a platform for immigrants to share their own stories to facilitate community support and empowerment. Our youth workforce development programs help with trade skills that connect them with higher-paying jobs. Our college readiness program helps our youth enroll for professional careers in college and position them for scholarship opportunities. Through our partners, youth have access to internships and skilled employment opportunities.
