Bringing Lessons from South Africa Home

 

This summer Teach with Africa partnered with the Bayview/Hunter’s Point YMCA in San Francisco, CA, to run an academic camp for local, at-risk youth.

More than 75 students, grades 2-8, participated in Math, Science, Writing, and Life Orientation classes taught by former (and future) Teach with Africa Fellows.

“This camp allowed Teach with Africa to bring home some of the lessons we’ve learned in South Africa, ” said Geordie Brackin, Camp Program Director. “Knowing that summer learning loss is highest in low-income neighborhoods—and that this severely impacts the widening achievement gap for students—it was a great chance for Teach with Africa to address local educational needs.”

Change the world, fund a teacher.
