EDUCATION OF YOUTH IN GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP, CULTURAL ENRICHMENT AND DIVERSITY - DIVERSITY CAMP 2015
Diversity camp 2015 is complete! This innovative camp was hosted in partnership with the Pleasanton Unified School District and Blue Oaks Church at the Amador Valley High School's Multipurpose room for middle school students on July 27th -31st. Scholarships for need-based students were awarded thanks in part to the Clorox Company and the City of Pleasanton.
The program introduced students to cultural diversity through performing and visual arts, which includes African dance, African drumming, and crafts. Exposure to different cultures and cultural enrichment fosters a greater understanding and appreciation of other members in the community and help enable diversity awareness, which allows our youth to become more responsible and respectful citizens. Cheza Nami Foundation provided an artistic platform through global education of African art and culture to educate and enlighten the lives of the children in the Tri-Valley.
