At Ujamaa Place stabilization is accomplished through seven core programs that integrate cultural values of brotherhood, family and taking care of one another under its logic model called the "Theory of Transformation."
Take a look at Ujamaa's Automotive Training Certification program as an example of a cultural and experiential education and training pathway that leads to employment stabilization for Ujamaa men. Jerry Griffis, Founder of JL Griffis Automotive Training School described the love and respect the men experience in the 10-week course, along with challenging curriculum and hands-on training through partnerships with local car dealerships who hire the men upon their graduation. "The dealerships have experienced great success from JL Griffis Automotive school which supports growth for their business and employment stabilization for Ujamaa men," Mr. Griffis explained.
"The annual breakfast is an opportunity to thank our many philanthropic and corporate partners who support the transformation programs, its long list of individual donors from the community who give generously, and the staff and service providers that give time, talent and love to help the men succeed," said Lee Buckley, Ujamaa Place Chief of Operations.
