School of Black Leadership in the Digital Age presents...
The DIGITAL ELDER Project
2-DAY Empowerment Retreat!
EmPOWER On-Line & in the African American Community!
Using the role of the traditional African elder as a guide, a Digital Elder™ is a role model who utilizes modern tools of 21st Century communication, to listen, nurture, guide, acknowledge, share wisdom and affirm (Byard, 2008).
Upon completion of the Digital Elder 2-day retreat, DE grads collaborate to produce a video podcast, sharing a critical message of inspiration and solution for the African American community.
