Our Mission

To provide services/programs where children with special needs work alongside their typically developing peers to enhance social skills, mold leadership qualities and boost the self-esteem of children; particularly children with high functioning autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. We nurture the self-esteem of our children by stimulating and developing their interest in entrepreneurship and STEAM.


We provide social-emotional coaching to better equip teachers and students with self-management strategies to improve social skills and reduce student behaviors. It Takes a Village to Educate a child is committed to providing children with “different abilities” the social skills needed to succeed both in and out of school.


Strong family involvement is linked to students’ social-emotional, and academic success. It Takes a Village to Educate a Child’s approach is to provide children, families, schools and community organizations with the appropriate services that lead to meaningful relationships and strong partnerships. It Takes a Village to Educate a Child is committed to working with families, schools and the community to provide equitable opportunities and positive outcomes for children, particularly those faced with disabilities.


Soft skills are critical to most organizations. Social behaviors and communication skills are essential components to career success, yet only 10-15% of young adults on the autism spectrum are gainfully employed. It Takes a Village to Educate a Child is committed to helping teens with “different abilities” acquire the skills and strategies to enable them to secure meaningful employment, independence and a healthy self-esteem.


Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I will learn.

- Benjamin Franklin -


It is our belief that every child has the capacity to excel and feel good about themselves once they discover their passion. It Takes a Village to Educate a Child was established to address this strong belief. We provide opportunities for children to find and develop their interests and passion.


Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you will help them become what they are capable of becoming.
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe -
