    In this workshop, we will introduce Ujamaa Place Program to various services as a community partner.

    Workshop Description

    Ujamaa Place coaches present Ujamaa Place’s “Theory of Transformation” Ujamaa Place provides holistic transformation for young African American men experiencing inequity at the intersection of race and poverty. We help them achieve brotherhood, stability, and personal success

    Presenter Bios: Darnell Baker & Jonathon Flowers “Inspiration”:

    Coach Darnell is an alcohol and drug counselor, licensed by the state of Minnesota. He began his corrections career as a corrections officer at the Lino Lakes Correctional Facility in 1994. In 1997, he transferred to Red Wing Correctional Facility and became a case manager and therapist for high-risk juveniles within the state criminal justice system until 2005. In February 2005, he returned to Lino Lakes Correctional Facility as a therapist in the chemical dependency program until his retirement from the department in July 2019. Baker also worked for Ramsey County Juvenile Division from 1995 to 2005 and served as a hostage negotiator for the Minnesota Department of Corrections from 2014 to 2019. Baker played a role in the development of the 2019 New Directions Cognitive Behavioral/Chemical Dependency Curriculum created in collaboration by the Hazelden Betty Ford Treatment Centers and the Department of Corrections. Coach Darnell brings a wealth of experience to Ujamaa Place and says it has been a true honor working to assist African American men in transforming their lives for the past 25 years.  

    Coach Inspiration like most of the Ujamaa Men, grew up in extreme poverty. For Inspiration, selling drugs was a path to money and status. It wasn’t until later in life that he realized selling drugs would prevent him from achieving what he ultimately wanted – a stable life. Inspirations’ criminal record kept him from entering the traditional workforce, and he was repeatedly forced back into a lifestyle he desperately wanted to escape. Today, he’s renamed himself “Inspiration,” a nod to his commitment to uplift youth and show them a different way. In 2019, Flowers received a full-time paid internship which led to a full-time position as an Ujamaa Place coach. Inspiration with the support services team at Ujamaa Place, provides mentoring and support for new enrollees into the Theory of Transformation.
