Adrian Williams is Executive Director and founder of the Village Project, a service organization focusing on education and cultural enrichment for youth and their families in the Western Addition. The Village Project organizes/produces family events, including this year’s upcoming 6th annual Kwanzaa Celebration (Dec. 26 – Jan 1) and most recently, Mardi Gras San Francisco Style/ Fat Tuesday in the Fillmore held on March 8th , which drew over 1,000 people and Grilling in the MO’ on June 11th held at Hamilton Recreation Center.

The Bayview Hunters Point YMCA is an anchor organization working with key partners to bring quality services and programs to the diverse communities it serves. Always working to make a difference, its mission is to build strong kids, strong families and strong communities by enriching the lives of all people in mind, body and spirit. The Bayview facility has consistently served as a safe haven where people gather for community-wide meetings, events and celebrations. The Y’s practice of collaborating with other community organizations, schools, faith-based institutions, and neighborhood businesses has resulted in this partnership with the Village project of the Western Addition. The African American Holistic Wellness program, (a project implemented by the Bayview Y), and the Village Project have co-sponsor multiple events for children, seniors and the community at large in the Fillmore neighborhood, including the upcoming seven day Kwanzaa celebration.

NOTE: The Village Project’s free after school enrichment program is underway. The program site is located at St. Cyprian’s Episcopal Church, 2097 Turk Street. Program hours are from 2 pm to 6 pm, Monday – Friday for youth 6 to 14 years old.
