MIAMI, June 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Louis Hernandez Jr.'s Foundation For A Bright Future ("For a Bright Future," "FABF"), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting underserved children through education and healthcare initiatives, has launched its innovative Media Lab program at the North Miami Beach ("NMB") Discovery Library in Florida, with the support of key partners in media technology. This unique program aims to make Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) education more accessible and help prepare students for a bright future.
The Media Lab is an initiative and hands-on experience for high school students to develop essential skills and engagement in the media space. The program starts with an introduction to content creation and will feature a cloud curriculum at the close of 2023, initiating its second phase.
The innovative Media Lab is a project-based learning program that creates an ecosystem for STEAM education, bridging the gap between academic courses and workplace requirements and providing students with opportunities to gain professional references, leadership skills, and self-confidence. These skills will not only help them succeed in college and the workforce but also help them become leaders in their communities.
"At our core, we aim to close the divide between students from underprivileged and underrepresented communities and educational opportunities. Our vision is to empower them to aspire to heights and become successful societal contributors. Our collaborations with schools and academic institutions like the North Miami Beach Discovery Library present an opportunity for driven students to immerse themselves in media technology. This experience can serve as an inspiration to pursue a career in this rapidly evolving and lucrative field," said Louis Hernandez Jr., Founder and Chairman of the Board, FABF.
