Our Mission & Vision

 

Our mission is to build and nurture intergenerational leaders through transformative education and revolutionary social action.

Our vision is for South Seattle to be an epicenter where Black and Brown folx thrive.

WA-BLOC achieves this vision through year-round educational programming that re-engages students in school, dismantles systemic racism, and disrupts the school to prison pipeline for black and brown youth in South Seattle.

 

Values

 

Healing-centered

We value self-love and healing so that we can come together to implement collective healing in our community

Youth-led

We center the voices of the youth we serve and support them in being at the forefront of every movement.   

Creative and Innovative

WA-BLOC is a team of self-starters who aim to cultivate and implement new ideas to enhance our unique programming.

Collective Leadership

Each member of the WA-BLOC team is a leader. We honor and uplift every voice to guide our work.  We operate under a flat hierarchy and expect each member to hold themselves accountable.

Unapologetic

We encourage our students to be their authentic selves without apology.
