Mission Statment

The Delaware Juneteenth Association (DEJA) develops and implements strategic prevention programming that addresses the problems facing our communities: alcohol, tobacco and substance abuse, domestic and gang related violence, teen pregnancy and low self-esteem by educating our children from pre-school to young adults through workshops and cultural events that provide knowledge and celebrate the African American experience as our heritage relates to all people.

About

Our purpose is to advance the historical, cultural, educational, social, self-esteem building and knowledge of prevention. This is implemented through the provision of programs and activities to communities’ youth and families.
