100 Classes for Black Kid's was created by homeschool mother of two, Amelia Butler. As a parent of two Black kids and a homeschool group leader in the Los Angeles homeschool community, Amelia had a strong desire to create accessibility for Black children to attend online classes that will enrich and inspire them.
Due to systemic racism, an array of subjects and experiences for Black kids can be limited or missing. Without the access to a wide range of studies and experiences Black children are unable to reach their fullest potential. The purpose of this project is to increase access so that Black children can explore more possibilities for themselves, their lives and their futures. Through discovering new subjects or learning more about subjects they love, Black children will be empowered in knowing what new possibilities are available to them for their future.
The Project is launching next week on November 23rd and runs till the end of January. If you are interested in participating in the project as a family with Black kids, a volunteer teacher or a Project leader contact Amelia via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. All classes are taught on Zoom and are FREE!
