Porch Talks

Umoja Porch Talks

Sharing stories and traditions, passing down knowledge, and simply spending time together as a community has been a long-standing tradition throughout history. One place where this has often taken place is on the porch. The porch provides a space that is not quite inside the home, yet not fully outside either. It's a middle ground that allows for casual conversations with neighbors as they walk by. This creates a warm and welcoming environment that fosters a greater sense of community and connectedness. By participating in AVC Umoja's Porch Talks, we can all contribute to building a stronger community together. Umoja Porch Talks are student-led conversations that create connection and build on community knowledge. Join us for Umoja Porch Talks every 4th Wednesday at the Umoja Village!

Every 4th Wednesday, 12:30pm - 1:30pm

  • February 28 in the in the Umoja Village (The Hub)
  • March 27 in the Umoja Village (The Hub)
  • April 24 in the Student Lounge (SCT 150)
