Ubuntu Academic Excellence Inc. (UAEI) is often invited by community leaders to conduct presentations/workshops in marginalized community primarily addressing the social and academic challenges for this demographic. As an organization that works primarily in the Black community, we bring energy, inclusivity and sound understanding of the cultural nuances that impact youth in this community. For instance, we focus on strong youth engagement skills and strength based approach with youth as a means for achieving individual empowerment. Many youth need encouragement to talk with their counsellor/educators, so UAEI emphasize formal and informal discussion to help identify any challenges these students might have with learning - social or academic.
At Ubuntu Academic Excellence Inc. we foster a positive learning environment that is conducive for all learners. Additionally, youth are encouraged to voice their opinions and concerns while being respectful of each other. We further encourage youth to treat mistakes as opportunities to explore and learn, rather than as flaws or weaknesses in their abilities. Youth are encouraged to invest quality time in their work and themselves, with the aim of developing in them a passion for life-long learning.
