UMOJA is a rock! I realize that UMOJA means unity, and that is everyting that this intuitively organized, people-friendly, student-loving nonprofit epitomizes, but, more importantly, they connect, and support, young people in the range of "communities" that they serve. And, UMOJA serves across a broad range of holistic, student development communities: self and social-awareness communities, peace communities, educational navigation communities, post-secondary and career planning communities, citizenship, neighborhood and global communities! Yes! I just spent 14 years of the most rewarding part of my teaching life while partnering with UMOJA at Manley Career Academy H. S. on Chicago's Westside! When I look back over the 5 school administrative changes that have occurred in that time, the first thing that comes to mind is the unwavering stability and the creative, pro-activite energy of the UMOJA staff and thier mission of enriching young peoples lives. As a carpentry instructor, I used their develpment foundations to build successes upon, and, ....in the meantime we managed two full-home renovations in the neighborhood!

In the past two decades I have consulted with dozens of non-profit on issues ranging from strategic planning to fundraising to organizational impact. I can say without hesitation that Umoja is one of the best run, most effective and forward-thinking organizations I have seen. In the past fifteen years I have watched Umoja grow from a start up non-profit to one of the most well respected in Chicago. Leaders in the philanthropic, education and social justice communities all hold Umoja up as a model. And even more important, I have been fortunate meet some of the thousands of people and work in some of the many communities that have been impacted by their work.

Umoja is one of Chicago's leading non-profits for making public schools safer places to learn and grow. Their work in the field of restorative justice is absolutely incredible and their evaluations of these efforts are second to none. Without question, Umoja has unlocked many of the secrets to successful school reform, education policymakers should take note of their model.
