Join us for a pilot virtual book club conducted between YASC and Amandla Development with Grade 9 learners. The purpose of the pilot is to establish a structure for future book clubs (to include Grade 7 and Grade 4 learners) using a model that incorporates lessons learned from YASC Amandla June/July 2021 project.
Sessions will take place on Wednesdays and Fridays for 4 weeks (8 sessions in total) beginning on Feb 9 and ending on March 4.
Please note that registration for these sessions is currently closed!
Amandla Development is a South African nonprofit, founded by Yale alumnus Scott Clarke, based in Philippi, a “township” in Cape Town. Almost 50% of Philippi’s youth drop out of school. But, education in a township is also about safety, nutrition, healthcare, community support, and access to and availability of resources. Such a layered, complex problem demands a layered, complex response. This is where Amandla comes in, and is the focus of the work they do.
