DBDLI Youth Advisory Council
Are you concerned about the education achievement gap between learners of African ancestry and non-African Nova Scotian learners? Are you interested in improving the educational experiences for learners of African ancestry? If you answered YES, please continue reading below! The Delmore “Buddy” Daye Learning Institute (DBDLI) is recruiting young adult leaders of African ancestry who reside in Nova Scotia, between the ages of 18 to 30, to form the DBDLI Youth Advisory Council. The Council will provide objective advice to the DBDLI Board and the Institute on learners of African ancestry experiences in the education system and provide innovative insight on what is needed to best support and engage learners of African ancestry. Why A DBDLI Youth Education Council? Evidence proves that there is a persistent achievement gap between learners of African ancestry compared to non-African Nova Scotian learners. The ‘Achievement Gap’ refers to any significant and persistent disparity in academic performance and/or educational attainment between different groups of students. This Council (Provincial membership ) will have the possibility to transform the future of learners of African ancestry and impact their educational outcomes by strategically advising the DBDLI Board and Staff.
