Wilmington AAP Students (or those near within New Castle County) seeking a Youth Engagement job opportunity are invited to apply as a Wave Learning Guide!
The Community Education Building (CEB) runs a program for students throughout New Castle County called the Wave Learning System. Wave honors each individual student’s past, present, and future (their “wave”), and supports them accordingly. Wave specifically focuses on social-emotional support, academic support, motivation, and passion-based projects, in small group communities. Wave seeks “near peer” mentors for historically underrepresented students, and seeks to add representation and diversity to the school systems. Wave unlocks student motivation through human connection, community, and a focus on personalized learning. Learning guides will run a holistic version of an after school program each day. They will circle up at a “family dinner” each evening, will facilitate physical activity, help with homework completion, deliver curriculum-based social-emotional support for students, run a book club, facilitate project-based learning, and communicate with families. This system aims to provide youth with an engaging learning experience that promotes self esteem, mental health, intrinsic motivation, engagement, and exposure, in a safe space after traditional school hours have ended.
From the first intercollegiate Regatta (Yale-Harvard Boat Race) in 1896, to the “knee” by Colin
Kaepernick in 2016, RACE has been “the elephant on the field” in all sports in American
society. This course explores the lives and life chances of Black athletes in the United States.
The focus is on African American male and female athletes and uses their lives to help us
interrogate the social, cultural, economic, and political structures that frame their life chances
both on and off the fields of play. Through lectures, readings, and mostly class discussions
(on-line; synchronous) we will look at events, personalities, and historical and contemporary
moments that define Black athletes interrogating the narrative representations that surround
them. From a sociological perspective we will study the history of sports in America to uncover
how sport mediates the experience of Black athletes within the broader American society. We
also consider other factors – e.g., such as class, gender, and sexuality – that help to inform these
narratives of the experiences of Black athletes.
Pacem in Terris invites Delaware adult visual artists (who live, work, or attend school in Delaware) between 18-39 years of age (by June 15th) to create their 2D original artwork highlighting institutional racism.

The prize will be presented at Pacem in Terris Annual Dinner.
The deadline has been extended for the Call for Artwork to give our community the opportunity to utilize artistic expression as not only a way to heal the heart, but to also visualize – then actualize – what peace looks like for our community. We are expanding the call to include work that brings to light institutional racism.
