African America Studies Program adopts second mentor school

The Citadel’s African American Studies Program has adopted its second mentor school, the Charleston Development Academy, a Charleston County public elementary charter school for children in kindergarten through the sixth grade.

The mentor partnership between the two schools is a key part of the African American Studies Community Outreach Initiative at The Citadel. The initiative, which is part of the African American Studies program at the college, serves as a channel for student, faculty, and staff involvement with the community and surrounding area. Other outreach initiatives will include community meetings, conferences, workshops, fund raising and a speakers’ bureau.

The African American Studies Community Outreach Initiative adopted its first school, the Military Magnet Academy, in September 2005.

With funding from the Jessie Ball duPont Religious, Charitable and Educational Fund the African American Studies Program will assist Charleston Development Academy by providing academic materials for the after school tutorials already in place at the Military Magnet Academy, sponsoring guest speakers at academy functions to include a Black History Month activities and a Quiz Bowl, and hosting periodic luncheon seminars at The Citadel for Military Magnet Academy students and staff.
