Whether looking to join as a contractor or as a volunteer, the UMOJA MN Team offers the unique opportunity to model, create, implement and deliver high-quality programming and excellent educational experiences based on African American culture and history to transracially adopted and foster youth in the MN community.
The UMOJA MN Team is an intentionally dynamic coalition of passionate youth program service providers. Within UMOJA MN camp “classrooms” we offer our youth participants a representative, equitable, and inclusive community of educators to serve as excellent role models, administrators, counselors, teachers, and positive change-makers as valued and integral facets of the UMOJA MN camp experiences. UMOJA MN team members are empowered to bring curriculum, activities, and powerful experiences to campers that reinforce positive identity development, cultural awareness, and historical consciousness of campers of various ages. UMOJA MN Team members are seasonally contracted on a rolling basis throughout the year. Team members provide safe spaces for campers to build community with other campers at the UMOJA MN camps that occur three times throughout the year.
*All staff members and volunteers require a Minnesota background check with fingerprints prior to volunteering and/or contracting services. Please connect with us now to get started, if you haven’t worked with us before!
Only Lead Positions will be paid, in accordance with our Permanency and Support Services grant through DHS. We appreciate everyone who is able to help support permanency for adoptive, foster, and kinship youth!
We hope you will join us as we celebrate African American culture and empower adoptive, kinship, and foster families at UMOJA MN.
