Character Educator | Facilitator | Coach | Mentor | Passionate about liberating young minds through alternative forms of education.
Hi I'm Imani,
I'm an Educator, Facilitator and Mentor. Founder and Director of Imani Academy™, specialising in character and personal development. I facilitate conversations, teach courses, hosts experiences, retreats, and deliver one-on-one/group support. More recently, I have contributed to educational research, curriculum course design and content, for a range of life skills courses, aimed at primary and secondary aged pupils.
Since being established in 2016, Imani Academy™ has been recognised for it's commitment to inspiring, uplifting and empowering young people and young adults, specifically those from underrepresented groups, nationally and internationally. Through bespoke programming, facilitation and mentoring.
I encourage those I journey with to think critically about pedagogical processes and the root causes of social problems and structures that cause systems to behave the way they do. I support people to think about how all of the above effects them and the people they interact with, in the different spaces they occupy — providing them with guidance on the steps they can make to challenge the status quo.Why do you want to be a part of the HundrED Community?
-To connect with a community of people who have similar interests and a thirst for innovation in education. -To collaborate with those who are working to re-imagine the education system.How can education support students to flourish?
Education for young people should be an experiential learning journey, I feel strongly that children, young people and adults too, should connect with the process of broadening and liberating their minds.Three innovations you would love for HundrED to know about. (and Why?)
I recently joined Enrol Yourself as a facilitator. Over the next year I will be setting up a Learning Marathon for individuals who work in the youth & education sector, specifically for those who aim to re-imagine the education system:https://medium.com/enrol-yourself/introducing-our-1st-host-fellowship-cohort-97f38c96ddb0
