BLACK EDUCATORS ASSOCIATION of Nova Scotia
CALENDAR OF EVENTS
BEA Open - July 20, 2019
The Black Educators Association was founded in 1969 to assist Nova Scotian communities of African heritage, to develop strategies that would move them toward an equitable education system. The BEA is a volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to securing improved opportunities for future generations. The Association raises awareness and facilitates the development of personal and professional skills through its various programs. Together we can make a difference through action and inspiration. Success begins with education and the BEA believes in teaching success.
The Annual BEA Open Golf Tournament is celebrating 31 years. Over 750 African Nova Scotian students pursuing a post secondary education have been awarded over $385,000 in the thirty-year history of the golf tournament. We would like to invite you to participate in the tournament this year, by registering a team to play, sponsoring or make a donation to the bursary program. Hope to see you on the greens in July!

The African Canadian Services Branch is currently seeking to employ African Nova Scotian teachers for the 4-week Summer Scholar Program (SSP).
The SSP takes place July 15th – August 9th/19, throughout 6 site/locations in the province. The hours of work are 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. There are full-time ($225.00 per day) and part-time ($95.00 per half-day) positions available. On July 8th & 9th the SSP will receive two days of Professional Development training at the Halifax Regional Centre for Education.
The purpose of the SSP is to inspire learning opportunities for the continued growth and engagement of African Nova Scotian learners during the summer months. Framed with an Africentric approach, the SSP focuses on a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) curriculum. As well, there are culturally meaningful educational opportunities such as field trips and speakers.
