Mission Statement


Our misssion is to promote indigenous leadership development in Northwest Pasadena and beyond. We emphasize ministry to children, youth and families in our community, which is predominantly African-American and Latino. ?Harambee? means ?Let?s Push Together? in Swahili. In 1983, the neighborhood surrounding Harambee Center boasted the highest daytime crime rate in Southern California. The corner which our facility occupies had the dubious title of ?blood corner,? for it was a place where the most drive-by shootings and failed drug deals occurred. We moved into this area and became neighbors, and for 22 years we have served the children and families of this community by offering Afterschool Tutoring, Bible teaching, Summer Day Camp, and Junior Staff job opportunities.

Description


Our programs include Harambee Preparatory School, Afterschool Program, Junior Staff, Summer Day Camp, Harambee Institute, and Harambee Pre-School.
