The purpose of the New Timbuktu Community Education Institute is to provide high quality professional development that is based on and draws from methodologies that are derived from the bodies of work and community based institutions that have traditionally been marginalized. NTCEI will provide a variety of African Centered, Liberation Focused, Community Empowerment tools that are substantively informed by racial equity.

These tools are useful particularly for those who work in the human/social service sector (teachers, school administrators, social workers, community organizers, public health professionals etc.)

If you are in need of a discounted slot in the seminar series, please reach out to us before attempting to register.
