The mission of Ten Thousand Villages is to create opportunities for artisans in developing countries to earn income by bringing their products and stories to our markets through long-term, fair trading relationships. The State College store is part of the larger Ten Thousand Villages organization, which operates more than fifty stores across the county and builds and maintains fair-trade business relationships with the international artisans they serve.

The Tides program offers no-cost support for families coping with the death of someone special to them. Children and teens from pre-school to age 18 and their adult family members come together to share their grief in a supportive setting. The mission of Tides is to provide safe and nurturing peer support programming for children, teens, and their families who have experienced the death of a loved one.
