Peace Warriors for the Arts (PWFA) offers teens enrolled in the Clubhouse Network a unique opportunity to research a topic and create a platform for global understanding through an African lens. The Clubhouse Network is an international community of organizations that provide learning environments in which teens working with mentors explore ideas of their choosing and imagination, develop new skills, and build confidence using technology.
Using resources from the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art and the exhibition Heroes: Principles of African Greatness, teens select from the suggestions below or create a project they would like to work on. Focus areas include: STEAM, Media Literacy, Visual Arts, Contemporary Studies, Social Studies, Language Arts, World Geography, African Studies, Art History. All students who complete one major project will receive a certificate of completion from the National Museum of African Art.
