Greetings Families!

On behalf of the Wichita (KS) Chapter of the Links Inc., in partnership with Ubuntu Village School we extend the opportunity to your child(ren) grades K- 11 to participate in the African American Male Empowerment Institute (AMMEI) Youth and Rising Scholars Program.

The AAMEI Youth and Rising Scholars program offers scholars access to cultural enrichment activities, exposures to STEM through the Arts, community service opportunities and access to professional African American male mentors over a twelve-week period.

Please attend the upcoming informational orientation to learn more about participation and to register.

A.A.M.E.I. ORIENTATION – 10AM Saturday, January 7, 2017 UBUNTU Village School/ HSCA, 4640 E 15th Street North (Library).

We look forward to another year to infuse, inspire and ignite cultural arts in our community!

The Mission of Ubuntu Village School is to infuse, inspire and ignite the fullness of each one’s being using cultural symbols, language and general way of life to heal, transform, teach and empower diverse learners for global leadership.

The mission of the African American Empowerment Institute (AAMEI) is to facilitate the growth of African American young men who not only excel in science, technology, engineering, the arts and math (STEAM) but are also critically-aware, social-conscious, artistically encouraged, oriented toward social justice. It is expected that AAMEI scholars are equipped to employ their STEAM knowledge to narrow the academic achievement gap and improve the African diaspora in the local, national, and global communities.

Sincerely,

Donna Wright, President, Wichita Chapter of Links Inc.

Dr. Delia Shropshire, Beautillion Chair, Wichita Chapter of Links Inc,

Angela Scott, Head Mistress, Ubuntu Village School
