Louis Hernandez Jr.'s Foundation For A Bright Future ("For A Bright Future," "FABF"), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the underrepresented and underprivileged children through initiatives related to education, healthcare, the arts, and youth leadership development, has recently launched its newly redesigned website amid the rapid expansion of its science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) programs.
The revamped website presents an enhanced user experience thanks to its minimalistic design and focus on storytelling. The site's visitors can anticipate an interactive browsing experience that is both engaging and seamless. The website is brimming with valuable information that enables exploration of its various programs and partnerships with children's hospitals. The new design serves to solidify the Foundation's mission and reflects its steadfast focus on advancing STEAM education in underserved communities.
For A Bright Future STEAM programs include the Media Lab and Financial Technology (FinTech) Innovation Lab – both designed to create ecosystems for hands-on experience within the school where students from underserved communities can develop marketable skills. Upon completing the programs, students may enter a four-year university program or find employment opportunities in industries where minorities are mostly underrepresented.
The Foundation is preparing to expand its Media Lab program to the North Miami Beach Library and New York City School District 6 following a successful launch at St. John Bosco High School (SJB) in Los Angeles in early 2023. It marks a significant milestone for the Foundation as it continues to forge ahead toward its goal of scaling up the reach of its STEAM programs nationwide. Those projects will empower students with access to the same cutting-edge technology and resources that have already transformed the learning experience for students in Los Angeles.
For A Bright Future's innovative programs will help pave the way for the next generation of STEAM professionals. By providing students access to the latest technology and resources, the Foundation is advancing its mission of equipping young minds with the skills and knowledge they need to thrive in a world driven by technology and innovation.
