Wakanda

August 26, 2018

This summer, a total of 17 students, aged 11-14, received a scholarship to participate in Wakanda in Aurora. Empower hosted two week-long sessions of the summer camp. Students engaged in learning opportunities over the course of the week focused on visioning, leadership, critical consciousness, and self-empowerment. The desired outcomes for Wakanda in Aurora were: 

  1. Students practice imaginative excellence by imagining, designing, and pitching their visions for a Wakanda in Aurora
  2. Students can identify and articulate examples of cultural oppression (individual, interrelated, institutional) in their community
  3. Students can identify and articulate examples of cultural liberation (individual, interrelated, institutional) in their community

Simply put, At the end of 5 days, can you get students to leave saying "I feel free, inspired, and powerful"?
