Weeksville Ambassadors

Millennials are the country's largest generation, meaning the future of our communities rest on our shoulders. A few Bed-Stuy and Crown Heights neighbors got together in 2015 to discuss ways to shore up Weeksville's place in contemporary Brooklyn and the Weeksville Ambassadors collective was born.

The Weeksville Ambassadors are a collective of young professionals committed to advancing Weeksville Heritage Center's mission and vision through community engagement and philanthropy. With your generous contribution, given in monthly installments or in a lump sum, Weeksville can continue producing enriching cultural programming and keep its doors open to visitors as we tell the story od the Historic Hunterfly Road Houses. Check out our giving options below!
