About the organization

The Raising A Village Foundation (RAV) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, committed to providing high-quality intervention programs and community resources to children, youth, and families in the areas of education, health and wellness, and the arts.

RAV functions as a direct response to the issues that prevail in low-income areas. Raising A Village leads several key initiatives designed to create positive change for children and families in underserved communities. Each program offers support and educational opportunities that promote personal growth and civic engagement. These initiatives include: Driven 2 Succeed, Driven Student Organization, At the Table, and We the Village.


The RAV AmeriCorps VISTA will assist in the overall development of the Driven 2 Succeed Program. The Driven 2 Succeed program is a youth development program created by the Raising A Village Foundation for elementary, middle and high school students in District of Columbia schools and community learning centers. The RAV AmeriCorps VISTA will serve with staff to build capacity and recruit Driven Student Guides (DSGs) through Federal Work Study (FWS) programs who provide support for students in the areas of academics, social-emotional learning, and college and career readiness. This includes the development of curriculum, the on-site planning and implementation of in-school programs, the creation of training seminars and resources for DSGs, as well as the implementation of best practices for FWS recruitment and onboarding of DSGs, and additional university and secondary school partners. As coordinator of the program, the RAV AmeriCorps VISTA member will also work with program assistants from the Raising A Village-Student Worker program to develop implementation, assessment measures, as well as long term student outcome measures. The goal of our program is to assist in creating clear pathways to productive citizenship by giving students the necessary tools needed to thrive in school, community and life.
