Our Team.

At The Village Place, we strive to create a supportive and inclusive community for BIPOC youth in Arkansas. Our team consists of a diverse group of professionals with varying perspectives and experiences, who have come together with a common goal in mind - to provide accessible resources and programs to our community. At The Village Place, we believe in the power of collectivism to create change, and every day, we work together to inspire, educate and act as a catalyst for the collective power of BIPOC youth to create more equitable and sustainable communities.
