Birthright Afrika Gala

June 19, 2024 | 6-10 p.m. EST

Hudson House
2 Chapel Ave, Jersey City, NJ 07305


Now’s your chance to celebrate young leaders, cause dreams to come true, and plant seeds that transform the lives of inner-city youth.

… all while enjoying a fancy dinner on us!


Have You Always Wanted to Do Something BIG for a Child?


 Have you wondered how you could do more, but haven’t found that thing that speaks to your heart? Does the idea of helping an urban teen reconnect with their roots appeal to you? If it does, you could be a part of a special group that helps a teen see the Motherland. Let me tell you how.

Each year, we host a gala in honor of our high school students who have been awarded a spot in the Nyamwange Leadership Academy. Acceptance into the Academy is an opportunity for inner-city students to spend four years with us honing their leadership skills. As part of that curriculum, we host a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the Motherland, called Birthright Afrika.


Each ticket to the Birthright Afrika Gala (Held Juneteenth 2024, 6 – 10 p.m. EST) will help fuel the aspirations of Black students who want to reclaim their lost African heritage.

Why should you seize this opportunity?
