The African and American Museum Professionals Mentoring/Exchange Program is the inaugural project of the U.S.-Africa Cultural Heritage Strategic Partnership Initiative (USACHSPI)

The African and American Museum Professionals Mentoring/Exchange Program is the inaugural project of the U.S.-Africa Cultural Heritage Strategic Partnership Initiative (USACHSPI), a collaboration of the International Council of African Museums (AFRICOM) with a number of U.S. organizations, including the American Association of Museums, African American Association of Museums, Michigan State University, Institute of Museum and Library Studies (IMLS) and the Smithsonian Institution.

Among its goals, USACHSPI seeks to expand opportunities for exchanges of cultural heritage professionals between Africa and the U.S. With support from the Getty Foundation, USACHSPI is delighted to announce its first program focused on mentoring/exchange for African and U.S. museum professionals for the design and development of children's exhibitions.
