In a previous post, I addressed the rising percentage of African American youth that’s currently being homeschooled. With the biased curriculum in our Public School System, it only makes sense that more parents and community members take matters into their own hands and educate our children. So I wanted to spotlight another African-centered school that is excelling at doing just that.
The XyayX Institute
The XyayX Institute is a learning center that helps Black youth achieve academic goals, develop good trade skills, and make positive contributions to their communities. Located in Brownsville, Brooklyn, this center is a safe and comfortable space for the children in the city to develop a love for learning. The classes take place Monday – Friday, with their curriculum consisting of Literacy & History, Social Studies, Science, Mathematics, and Writing/Literature. And they also provide development initiative programs such as K-12 Enrichment classes, Project TAP (TASC assist programs), and C.V.T Initiative training.
The XyayX Institute definitely has my support. For more information on the school, please check out their official website. You can also connect with them on social media via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. And if you’re interested in donating, please click here.
Until Next Time…
