Retreats are hosted May-October
Working with a local school to identify an attainable need we can fulfill during our time there. This could be tutoring students, painting, assisting with technology, taking class photos, etc.
You'll be connected to a buddy during this time who will show you how it is to live in Africa. You may cook with them, you may visit their jobs, or you may end up at a local bar, whatever you're into lol!

Integration & Healing
Nightly conversations, reflections and healing sessions including processing the new experience, bridging the diaspora gap, and racial disparities.
What I find is missing in the programs that i've come across is support along this journey. From the moment you are accepted on this retreat, you are supported by me with 1 on 1 and group calls before the trip so you feel empowered and ready!
About Your Host
So what makes me the ideal guide?
From living in multiple African countries for about 10 years, to guiding teens on trips to beautiful places like Colombia and Turkey, I am trained with the logistical, emotional and practical wisdom needed to guide you on a beautiful, life changing experience.
What's unique about this program is that I assist you on your physical, and emotional journey here, which are equally important. We dig deep into the emotional aspects that may arise as you visit a new, exciting, place. From physical to emotional support, I am here to serve you my love.
