Who We Were Before Training

Nigeria 20 Training Directory PDF file


Nigeria XX was a teaching group to be assigned to Teacher Training Colleges in the Eastern and Midwestern Regions of Nigeria. Our subject areas were: science; math; and arts & crafts. Our training was at UCLA during the winter of 1966. We were housed at Campus Towers apartment complex and took our meals at Hershey Hall. We did our practice teaching in Watts.


We served at Teacher Training Colleges in the Eastern and Midwestern Regions. A number of our schools were closed after the first year and those volunteers were reposted.
