about the program

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. 

OUR STORY
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.

THE PROBLEM

whadya know

A lack of information, misperceptions and the media's largely negative portrayal of Africa continue to overshadow Africa’s tremendous value. The Whadyaknow about Africa video series is intended to reinforce the need for more accurate and balanced information about Africa.

The values and mindset developed by the Teach Africa program are not only necessary for inevitable interaction with the international community; they are equally important to basic, everyday interactions in our schools, work environments, shopping centers, and neighborhoods.

I'm wondering why I never contacted these guys sooner! Seriously, they all have commendable talent in their respective fields and knocked my concept out of the ballpark. Thanks for an amazing experience!
