Rainbow Village CC is a state of the art school of the arts. The main attraction at this college is a storytelling theater where the main function is to train up a child with a foundation of truth and righteousness. We have a unique way of telling stories, using as a foundation, the "Story of Creation."
Our mission is to empower our young people with the tools they need to grow academically and spiritually, that they would know who they are, what their purpose is here on earth, what The Creator requires of them, and how to fulfill their purpose. We provide opportunities for young people of all ages and backgrounds to learn the language, culture, and history of Afrika. In particular, we encourage children of Afrikan descent to draw strength and pride from their Afrikan heritage, as they grow into confident and engaged adults in the global community.
It is our goal to implement right knowledge, that children of all nationalities will be trained, and in turn go forth, being a positive example, and living a righteous life.
Storytelling/reading is not the only avenue that is used, we also conduct workshops that are designed to build oratory, reading and writing skills. The young participants are taken through the steps of publishing their written work, accomplishing the completion of a self published book, and then shown how to promote it themselves.
We hope that you will not only allow us to share with your child our unique style of storytelling but our gifts as well. We conduct simulated exercises for our young people to participate in, developing life skills that will help their developmental growth. We have theatrical programs that will allow your child to be creative in who they are, which will also build confidence and self-esteem.
We believe we gain power through knowledge, which is the power given to us by the Creator, who controls our destiny, which has already preordained. Willful ignorance is surrendering control. There is only One, to whom we should surrender!
Our school and on-site theater is presently in transition. Please be patient as this transition is underway. In the meantime, sign our guestbook and continue to visit our website.
We are doing great things... To God be the glory!
Our Rainbow represents children of all nationalities!
