OLA16 teaches sixteen principles of sustainable culture. Our curriculum, resources and activities are intended to recognize Members who best exemplify Orisa Lifestyle in their daily lives. The Academy encourages members to heal their lives and the lives of those they serve. Members distinguish themselves as men and women who add value to the traditions and spirit of Orisa Lifestyle. As such, they promote year-round and long term orisa devotion, and provide positive service to others. OLA16 membership, activities, and training are models of quality leadership development and programming that enrich and help to rescue for all African Americans the virtues of Orisa Lifestyle.
