Program Description

The DuBois Leadership Academy provides students in grades 9-12 with a unique learning opportunity. Rigorous academics teamed with project-based learning and creative, highly qualified teachers gives each students a place to learn, explore and grow. Our African-centered curriculum allows for African American students to learn about history and the world through a non-traditional lens.

For years, our seniors (some of them since they were in elementary school) have wanted to take a trip to Africa, a continent they have only learned in school. Your help can assist a month long trip for 10 of Dubois Prep's tops student to the country of Niger. There students will have the opportunity to learn the native language (Zarma), become an apprentice to a local master artisans, and experience a culture unlike anything they have every encountered.
