Caribbean Roots:
A Practical Guide to Self Expression

Whether you live in the Caribbean or have Caribbean roots, there is a lot that we aren't taught about our history and culture.

This 6 week online course brings to life the untold stories, vibrant traditions, and rich heritage of the Caribbean in a unique way. 

Our learners get to add their voice, paint their stories and write their experiences into Caribbean history while chatting with a group of cool and passionate adults.

This is not just a course but a celebration of Caribbean identity and a journey of self-discovery. Are you ready?

Why register?

It's not your typical class; it's more like a laid-back celebration of who we are as Caribbean people.

It's a chance for our teens to find and express themselves in the rhythm of our culture, with a number of adults who are curious and passionate about the stories of our past, our food, our music, our festivals, our heroes and our sheroes.

Our learners will leave with:

Enhanced communication skills

Learners will practice the art of questioning so that they can use it as a tool to navigate the world with curiosity.

A deeper understanding of their history

By enhancing understanding the context behind the stories of our past, learners will be able to appreciate some of the privileges that they have today.

Greater confidence in themselves

By exploring their personal histories and practicing the art of self expression, each learner will have new skills and stories that they can use to navigate the world in confidence.
