Alisyo is a leadership development organization. We support change leaders and amplify their impact by providing social-emotional and wellness-based skills. Our core programs include a fellowship, retreat, and campaign for renewed leadership.
The Alisyo experience will help leaders become more confident, authentic, and impactful changemakers. Also, it will help those who may not see themselves as leaders become thriving social change agents.
Supporting renewed leaders is about nurturing and training the individual leader and advocating for healthier practices by stakeholders who invest in their work.
Alisyo’s values are rooted in the founder’s Caribbean heritage and include a strong commitment to diversity, equity and the natural environment.
Our work is organized around four pillars:
Fellows will be selected who are serving communities that are facing a wide range of social, cultural, and/or environmental crises from poverty to climate change.
The name Alisyo is inspired by the warm trade winds known as "the Alisios." Just as mariners have for centuries relied on these smooth winds to enable their oceanic journeys, today's leaders will be powered by Alisyo on their personal journeys of self-discovery, regeneration, and connection.
Alisyo is pleased to have the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands as its fiscal sponsor.
The Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands has been supporting positive change making work for 30 years and offers learnings for the US territories and mainland US — from St. Thomas, USVI to Los Angeles, California. CFVI was created to serve both donors and nonprofit organizations that want to ensure the highest quality of life for both present and future generations.
