Elimu Institute

The Elimu (Educators) Institute is a professional development seminar designed for those who support student learning (teachers, youth workers, and administrators of youth focused programs or services).  Elimu is centered in empowering youth stakeholders in the creation of safe and effective learning environments for children of color.  The seminar focus is on teaching participants classroom/program strategies for engagement, tools for behavior management, and culturally responsive curriculum development.  The Inaugural Elimu Institute rallied around “Bringing out the Excellence in children” with key learning's in three areas:
