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.
We value self-love and healing so that we can come together to implement collective healing in our community
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.
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.
We encourage our students to be their authentic selves without apology.
