KÚKÁTÓNÓN consistently grows capacity in delivering programs and services to children and young adults, families and communities, and to increase participation in various aspects. We require culturally -specific and -centered lesson plans and teaching aids that can facilitate a robust and effective Community Healing Art Training (chat) through the Real H. I.P. H.O.P. Circles (RHHC). Designed to support clear and adaptive learning about African and African American cultural traditions, to be delivered by volunteers and a committed multi-generational community that supports operational outcomes centered in youth and young adult development using their critical thinking and creative minds about Racial Equity & Social Justice, Cultural Arts & the African Diaspora, Wellness & Healing, and/or Collective & Community Partnerships to re/engage in educational achievements.

KÚKÁTÓNÓN started in 1983, by the founding members as a Portland school-based program before growing to a nonprofit Oregon business in 2009. Our dedicated board directors and active volunteers have years of collective experience with culturally specific, education and youth development programs. The current executive director has 25+ years in the nonprofit arena and has spent over 10 years creating, developing, launching and/or managing Youth led programs in Northern Nevada (Gang Alternatives Partnership SAFE2 Project), Baltimore, Maryland (House of Mercy: Kids House) and Washington, DC area (Time Dollar Youth Court), and supported the Operations at the Urban League of Portland from 2016 to 2018.
