Our Strategic Plan

World U.P. was founded on the idea that creating programs and spaces that promote Understanding and Peace is the key to building safe and inclusive communities where people can define their identity, honor their heritage and cultures, and find strength in the diversity of their fellow humans.

This strategic plan lays out our 5 & 10 year goals to expand programming and community in Richmond, Virginia to ultimately reach the goal of establishing an accessible Cultural Community Center. Our dream is to build a place where people can have access to a series of resources, learn about different cultures, and be a place of asylum for anyone who needs it.

Our plan and approach will continue to be updated as we continue to refine our financial, operational, and communication strategies to reach these goals.
