Campus Establishes Partnership with Community Action Agency

The Charlottesville Campus has developed a very successful partnership with the Monticello Area Community Action Agency (MACAA). As part of the partnership, the campus recently hosted MACAA’s Strengths-Based Family Workers (SFW) series of classes. In the SFW program, MACAA students are given in-depth instruction and strategies for family development and self-sufficiency to help them more effectively assist families. The training program expands the knowledge and skills which family workers need to generate long-lasting gains in family stability and self-reliance.  


“We are extremely privileged to host the MACAA Strengths-Based Family Workers program at our campus,” said campus director John Donohue. “Our alliance with MACAA extends our community involvement and awareness to an extremely important constituency.” 


One of the instructors of the SFW program, Lindell Chavis, is an ANU graduate who has done exceedingly great things in terms of community education initiatives. “Our alliance with American National University in Charlottesville is an ideal expression of our joint interests in disseminating educational opportunities to individuals and families, and furthering community development,” said Lindell.
