Our Organization

Founded in 2016, the Southside Community Development Alliance is a nonprofit organization 501(c)(3) that focuses on the youth, the underserved and working class members of Southside Virginia.

Our Mission

Foster partnerships with community service organizations, local groups and small business owners. We serve members of the community by offering personal development, professional development, leadership, financial literacy and entrepreneurship related programs and workshops. Efforts will shape a more self-sufficient resident and help build a stronger community.

Our Methods

People are the most valuable natural resource.  SCDA communicates with members of the community to identify current challenges. Our method is to approach these challenges from the perspective of educators and help find workable solutions. Our goal is to raise the level of consciousness of the community.  It is understood that a forced change can feel violent, but a decision to change can be liberating.
