Our commitment to boosting student achievement really shows in Project Ujima. This dynamic program is devoted entirely to engaging African-American families in reaching that all-important goal: student academic success.
Project Ujima offers a series of free evening classes for parents and guardians of African-American students.
Classes are moderated by Elneda Shannon, Program Manager at the Harold J. Ballard Parent Center, and Pat Washington, Ph.D., a university professor and scholar both whom are African American. Our program taps the rich diversity of knowledge and experience within African-American communities.
To help busy families take part in our programs, we provide free childcare and free dinner in many of our classes, depending on location. Plus, we offer free homework stations during parent classes, so children can be with their families in a safe environment focused on academics. Spanish translation is provided.
