Welcome to Salama

For more than 30 years, Salama (which means peace in Swahili) has served the Greater Nashville area by providing robust programs to help youth thrive, regardless of barriers. We partner with families in need to help them reach God-given dreams for their children. 

Salama runs an extended learning program five days a week during the school year and a six week session (9.5 hours daily) during the summer. We strive to develop K-12 students into leaders, investing up to 650 hours a year per student in academics, the performing arts, and spiritual development in the Christian faith.
