United Volta Association Inc

A Not-For Profit Organization



The youth wing of UVA comprises of young dynamic adult members and children of older married members. UVA members whose children are in school (from first grade to Bachelors level), are automatic members of the association provided
1. their parents listed their names with the association,
2. they attend general monthly meetings regularly together with their parents and or guardians,
3. help-out in any function of the association for example arranging chairs at meetings, helping out during our annual get-together etc.
Please note that the above are just for informational purposes. The children have to be present at all functions of the association so that they are known, just as we do it in our various villages and towns back home.

Every year, the youth have a summer picnic, mostly in July. However, this picnic is open to adults as well because, to us Ewes, communism is one of the major tenets of our culture.

Every August, the association organizes a back-to-school program for the youth. This program distributes school supplies to all children of school going age who are in school here in the United States only. Children of members who are outside of the United States do not benefit from this program as the program is intended to encourage the children living in the USA, to be active participants in the Ewe community.

Up until recently, the association’s vibrant cultural troupe was dominated by the youth. Due to relocation, graduation etc., the association’s cultural troupe has not been as vibrant as before. As a result, the youth participation in this noble venture has died down. We would like to encourage all parents to once again start encouraging and bringing their children to the cultural practices. “Kokloxor mekpea nu na koklo O”. Their involvement will go a long way to at least teach them some aspects of the Ewe culture since they are not back home (Ghana, Togo, and Benin) to learn everything there is to know about our culture.

UVA in conjunction with National Council of Ghanaian Associations (NCOGA) also organizes FREE tutoring and test prep services to students on Saturdays. This service is held at the Yonkers Public Library from 11am to 2pm. Parents are encouraged to register their wards with the NCOGA Reps of the association, who will in turn submit such names to the National Council. NOTE: The more names we get, the more enthused our dedicated educators will be in coming out weekly to assist our children.

In the near future, the current executive body is working on introducing other activities that will hopefully catch the attention of our youth – for example recreation afternoons, bowling, “what do you know competitions”, essay competitions, etc. In an attempt to preserve our Ewe language, the “what do you know” and essay competitions etc. will be conducted in Ewe.

Please visit the site very often for updates as well as offer your suggestions to make United Volta Association Inc. one of the best if not the best regional grouping in North America.
