The program operates as an after school program designed for West African youth to help them take pride in their cultural heritage while also introducing West African traditions to youth from other cultural backgrounds. Educational enrichment aids refugee students who need to catch up with their grade level. The program has employed W. African staff (Liberian and Sierra Leonean), hosts a West African meal twice weekly, has sports teams organized by national heritage, and has included African dance instruction. Activities, such as arts, music and science, have a cross-cultural focus. Sports and food are often the most popular elements.
