Family, Our community and the world has been beset by what we know as COVID-19 - a novel coronavirus and the various governmental responses. Life as we know it has been upended. On Mondays and Saturdays until June 6th, AYA Educational Insitute will continue to promote a multi-pronged response to facilitate our community succeeding during these tough times. We call it Ngolo (energy/power)! In a two-hour town hall meeting like atmosphere, we’ll detail our response and highlight Saturday class schedules for FREE on-going training with the following foci:•What is the virus? How do we defeat it - in ways that build our families and community?•How do we become the “calvary” instead of waiting on and surrendering to big-pharma? •How do we activate our melanin even more to support our already powerful immune response?•Free AYA classes to support for middle and high-school students for new home-schoolers•Free classes to help parents who have become new teachers•Free classes to help parents evaluate and use online teaching / learning resources•Countering the harm of “social-distancing”(SD) with Authentic Emotional & Cultural Connection (AEC). While SD policies are proving effective to help reduce the transmission of Covid-19, SD also creates or exacerbates personal and familial alienation, fear, inter-personal conflict, and injected oppression•Countering fears - current and anticipated overt and subtle oppression raised higher by this crisis.
