Kuumba Evanston is a local non-profit organization made up of a group of community members, coaches and educators whose mission is to serve families of color that have been marginalized by systemic racism.

We provide resources and opportunities that guide 3rd–8th grade black and brown children through mentorship programs, academic supports, discovery opportunities and positive real world experiences.
