The Active 20-30 Club of Albuquerque is a group of young professionals who:

– Support our community and charitable programs that serve and benefit the children of New Mexico.
– Develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive and serviceable citizenship.
– Build enduring friendships while rendering altruistic service and building better communities.
– Desire knowledge and self-improvement and develop trust, friendship and understanding between people in their professional and social activities.

The Active 20-30 of Albuquerque is affiliated with one of the largest and fastest growing service organizations in the world, Active 20-30 International and World Council (WOCO).

We believe that the youth of today need opportunities to grow as civic minded-members of their community by serving and being leaders.

Youth to be served, must serve.

September 19:  Damien “Jr. Gong” Marley @ The Bridge

Reggae legend Damian Marley attained success on his own terms. Despite the weighty last name he carries courtesy of his father — music legend Bob Marley — Jr. Gong has etched an indelible lane for himself in music

In 2005, he made his mark on the socially driven single “Welcome to Jamrock,” on which Marley unabashedly addresses the high crime rate that plagues his home country of Jamaica. The record, which peaked at No. 55 on the Billboard Hot 100, netted him a Grammy Award for best urban and alternative performance. Marley’s stock continued to skyrocket when he connected with Nas for their 2010 collaboration album Distant Relatives. The political tandem made Africa a priority, and they donated the proceeds from their album to the struggling continent.


THE BRIDGE at Santa Fe Brewing
