Teaching Artist Institute (TAI) is proud to announce the launch of the A is for Africa Program, a groundbreaking initiative aimed at developing youth of African descent into cultural ambassadors. This innovative program will empower participants to become pioneering citizens who act locally and think globally, fostering intercultural communication, raising cultural IQs, and promoting diplomacy in an increasingly multicultural world.Participants will utilize experiential learning, media, and the arts to educate themselves and the communities they serve.

The A is for Africa Program begins its project-based research curriculum through “TAI HIGH” in the USA, providing a solid foundation in cultural exploration and community engagement. The journey culminates in an international classroom experience in Africa, where cultural ambassadors will immerse themselves in the rich heritage and diverse landscapes of the continent.

In today’s interconnected world, it is more important than ever to cultivate young leaders who are equipped to navigate and bridge cultural divides. Through the A is for Africa Program, we aim to empower youth of African descent to become agents of change in their communities and beyond. By leveraging the power of education, media, and the arts – we promote understanding and cooperation. “Our goal is to identify and empower 50 youth from across the country by May 2024.At TAI High, we believe in the holistic development of youth as a means to preserve our past and illuminate our future. By investing in our cultural ambassadors, we are investing in the cultivation of a more inclusive and harmonious society.”

To meet the expenses associated with the expeditionary learning component of the curriculum, the A is for Africa Program has launched the “A” is for Africa Grade-A-Thon sponsorship program. This initiative provides an opportunity for businesses, community institutions, and outstanding citizens to sponsor each cultural ambassador by providing financial and moral support. These sponsors will serve as a vanguard, helping to nurture a village-raising support system that empowers youth and fosters global citizenship.

Join us in supporting the A is for Africa Program and investing in the future of cultural diplomacy and youth leadership. Together, we can empower a new generation of change-makers who will make a positive impact on the global community!
