Field Trip Description


On [Date], Street2Straight organized a field trip for a group of community members from New Haven, CT to Washington DC. The purpose of this field trip was to provide an amazing cultural experience by visiting the African American History Museum.

The African American History Museum is a renowned institution dedicated to the preservation and celebration of African American history and culture. By visiting this museum, the Street2Straight participants were able to learn about the struggles, achievements, and contributions of African Americans throughout history.

During the field trip, the participants had the opportunity to explore the museum’s exhibitions, which cover various aspects of African American history, including slavery, civil rights movements, arts and culture, and more. Through interactive displays, artifacts, and multimedia presentations, the participants gained a deeper understanding of the African American experience and its impact on American society.

The field trip provided a unique opportunity for the Street2Straight participants to broaden their perspectives, challenge stereotypes, and foster appreciation for diversity and inclusion. By immersing themselves in African American history and culture, the participants were able to develop a greater sense of empathy and unity.

Overall, the Street2Straight field trip to the African American History Museum in Washington DC was a transformative experience that enriched the lives of the community members involved. It not only provided them with valuable knowledge and insights but also empowered them to become advocates for social justice and equality in their own communities.

Collaboration Through Partnerships

This collaboration is a reflection of our commitment to working together with like-minded organizations to create a brighter future for marginalized individuals. By pooling our resources, knowledge, and expertise, we and Fixing Fathers can provide a more impactful and comprehensive experience for the youth and community members involved.

Additionally, our approach to our programs and initiatives highlights our collaborative mindset. We understand that true transformation requires a comprehensive approach, which is why we address various areas of development such as life preparedness training, job readiness, entrepreneurship programs, and artistic endeavors. 


By offering a wide range of support and opportunities, we collaborate with individuals in their journey towards empowerment and breaking cycles of violence and poverty.

In summary, we focus on collaboration by partnering with other nonprofit organizations and taking a holistic approach to our programs.
