Sabura Inc.

The mission of SABURA (Student Ambassadors Bonded Under Recreation & Achievement) Youth Program is to educate, engage and empower youth, their families and the communities they hale from, on a local and global level, through carefully designed, culturally and linguistically relevant programming that is affordable, safe and affirming. Currently, we serve Brockton, MA youth from immigrant families—with a particular focus on those from Cabo Verde. During the school year, SABURA offers tutoring and special events; the 6-week summer program, however, is our signature project and includes day-today activities, weekly field trips, civic engagement, as well as culturally and linguistically relevant programs.

“The opportunity to collaborate with Stonehill College and share space at the DCCE at Harbor One Bank has opened up a world of possibilities for SABURA. Through this new venture, we can realize the long-held goals of building capacity and strengthening and expanding our work in collaboration with other local groups addressing the same urgent causes in our community.”
 Aminah Pilgrim, co-founder of SABURA, Inc.
