A message from our Executive Director

Ray Funnye executive director

Every year since its inception, The Village Group has continued to provide quality programs and experience an increase in youth participation. Our recent successes saw an expansion of programming, a gain in organizational partnerships and individual giving, as well as improved volunteer development. We are proud of our youth who have shown strong academic and character growth.

Without the support of our volunteers and donors, the success of our participants and the enhancement of The Village Group’s programs would not be possible. In a move to improve engagement with our donors and volunteers, we are revamping our social media outreach. Please “like” us on Facebook to receive timely information.

On behalf of our board, volunteers and participants, please accept our sincere appreciation for your continued support and financial contributions. May you and your family enjoy a healthy, happy and prosperous 2014.

Ray C. Funnye,
Executive Director
