We are THRILLED to welcome back Akwaaba Ensemble to the Community Block Party! Akwaaba Ensemble last joined us in 2018 and thrilled our audience with their “don’t miss” drum and dance performance.
ProsperityME’s Annual Event, the Community Block Party, is a much-anticipated, unique celebration that highlights and continues our important work providing financial education, counseling, and support to Maine’s immigrant community. During the recent circumstances of the pandemic, our mission has taken on an even deeper meaning as we continue our work committed to ensuring that immigrant New Mainers have the support they need to economically thrive in our communities.

Our 2022 program will include:
• A Celebration of ProsperityME’s programs, including our Financial Education Classes, Scholarship Opportunities, Women’s Economic Empowerment, Small Business and Housing Support programs.
• A diverse community panel composed of former ProsperityME students discussing current issues and how ProsperityME helped them on the road to financial success.
• Awards for partners and community members who have supported our mission through the years.
• A “Block Party” atmosphere, complete with dinner catered by local small-business, Yardie Ting!
