Diversity has always been one of America’s greatest strengths. The Teach Africa program is even more essential today because it fosters a culture and mindset of understanding and partnership that embraces and celebrates our plurality.
what is teach africa
Teach Africa is The Africa Society’s response to the demands of an increasingly globalized world. It was created to addresses the lack of Africa education in the curricula of schools throughout the United States. It does this by orienting and supporting educators, engaging our youth and providing them the exposure and proficiency to live and lead in a global environment. Teach Africa is an Africa-focused program that cuts across different subjects in the curriculum.
Educators are using this program to augment and update educational materials to engage students in learning about other countries and cultures.
