Pan-African CDI Launches Weekly Youth-Led Discussion Group

Founder and Executive Director Alpha Diallo recently initiated a weekly youth-led discussion group that promotes critical thinking and dialog about current events, literature, and culture. Pan-African CDI's four fantastic interns -- Demesvar Destin, Jason Tomlinson, Asheem Calixte and Jonathan Medica -- are part of the first cohort. In addition to inspiring the program, they gave it the name "Tuesday Talks." Our future newsletters will include updates from our talks.

Outreach Committee Strategic Meeting, July 2015

“Unity is strength, when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved." -Mattie J.T. Stepanaek


On July 21st, 2015, co-Founder and Executive Director, Alpha Diallo and team members, Koku Afeto, Aliou Labe, and Victoria Ogundipe, of the Outreach Committee, held a strategic team meeting at Madiba Restaurant in Harlem. The purpose for the meeting was to collectively enhance and support each other's team building skills. The team discussed ongoing outreach efforts and more effective methods to strengthen PACDI's community outreach action plan. Our Executive Director and the Outreach Committee will continue to have the necessary meetings to improve Pan African CDI collective staff skills.

The Outreach Committee seeks to develop strong rapport with potential community PACDI members and partners as well as strengthen the community's awareness of Pan African CDI's up and coming services.
