Kamp Kujichagulia

Together in partnership Acadia University and The Black Educators Association are pleased to now be accepting applications for this year’s Kamp Kujichagulia. KUJICHAGULIA (pronounced koo-gee-cha-goo-LEE-ah) is the second of the seven principles of Kwanzaa. Kujichagulia means Self-determination. This year 30 African Nova Scotian students in grades 9, 10, and 11 (ages 14 – 18) are invited to gather for the event. (Students entering grade 9 who are 14 years or older will also be considered, depending upon space.) The objectives of the initiative are as follows:

  • Motivate African Nova Scotian Learners to attend university/college through positive exposure and participation
    in university campus life;
  • Reflect and provide education from an Africentric perspective;
  • Demonstrate the possibility of combining sports, technology, culture and academics in one’s life;
  • Stimulate consideration of future employment/career options;
  • Provide opportunities to interact with other African Nova Scotian learners and with African Nova Scotian role models.
