Ka Joog-Program Specialist [MCN]
Ka Joog is a nationally recognized, Somali nonprofit organization tailored towards enriching the lives of Somali American youth by utilizing the positive elements of education, mentoring, employment, and the arts. Established in 2007 by a group of Somali young adults, Ka Joog focuses its efforts on encouraging Somali youth to “ka Joog” or “stay away” from negative influences that can be detrimental to their development and future. Instead, Ka Joog directs youth towards higher education, civic involvement, and a volunteer commitment to the community. Ka Joog offers programs in mentoring, tutoring, and job readiness training. Ka Joog also provides positive outlets through the arts, and encourages youth to share their talents with others.
