Professional Development

The Center for African Studies Outreach conducts staff development workshops and institutes open to educators, librarians, parents and community members in Washington, DC and the mid-Atlantic states of Maryland, Virginia, Delaware and Pennsylvania.

In the summers, Outreach hosts a three-day Summer Institute - "Africa in the Classroom and Community" for highly motivated educators interested in reading, learning, and teaching about Africa. 

Throughout the year, Outreach collaborates with other institutions to organize educator workshops. Please contact us to request a professional development workshop.
