At the end of 2019 after a shooting that left a young person from our community dead an another wounded, a meeting was called out to community members to talk about the violence amongst our young people got together to try and do something about it. We started with Fellowship BBQ's in the Park every Monday. The Village Lansing is a community-based non profit organization that was created to strengthen and support our communities through outreach, resource allocation, mobilization, mentoring, empowerment, and service. We are so much more than an organization or a group; we fiercely believe in the idea that we all move as one regardless of our geographical location within our city. We move in unison with one goal in mind: to get our communities the help that is out there to empower them for success. We aim to close the gap between those in need, and those that have, and are willing to give. Everyone is The Village. Meaning WE ARE ONE. Anyone that is helping a kid or a family, giving their time, donating a resource, is THE VILLAGE.
Addressing youth violence through mentorship, education, empowerment, and resources.
The Village Lansing is more than an organization, it is a mindset. We believe that we are all The Village and aim to strengthen and support our youth and community.
to close the gap between those in need, and those that have, and are willing to give.
