We bring living history into the classroom through our dynamic college level course experience. We partner with local schools to transform a student’s classroom experience. When Mamie Chalmers came to speak with students enrolled in our class, she shared her experiences fighting for civil right in 1963. After being sprayed by a water hose during the height of the movement, her iconic photo was seen an inspiration around the world. During her classroom talk, she showed students how to overcome challenges, and work towards a better future. Her example is one of many experiences our students have during their Atlantic Impact course.
