Community Development Nonprofit implementing
Serving South Florida
The Manifezt Foundation aims to make quality STEM education accessible to students of all socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. Our long term goal is to equip our community with the skills to thrive in a South Florida continuously penetrated from a growing STEM market.
Equal education for all is a value we keep central to the Manifezt model; ultimately, a diverse learning environment that nurtures curiosity and encourages inquiry is what aim to provide our community after all of our efforts.
Our leaders teach using open-ended and guided discussion methods, paired with smaller activities throughout that enable our students to incorporate the scientific method in their questioning and learning.
For decades, hospitality has been the focus of South Florida’s Infrastructure building. This has lead to the lack of investment scalable business opportunities including STEM industries.
STEM careers are the highest paying of any industry as well as the most expensive to teach.
Study after study, there is one critical underlying theme – education system in America needs significant improvement.
The challenge commences when one attempts to solve how and where to improve.
In public schools, unfortunately, due to the lack of funding, there has been a reduction in the hands-on career based STEM Education, leaving kids without practical application experiences.
Here at Manifezt, we supplement traditional in-school education with a project-based curriculum designed to capture their interest, provide real world exposure, and more importantly limelight the various career opportunities available in STEM.
In partnerships with universities we implement workshops at community centers, libraries, and schools across South Florida. This allow us to develop highly-skilled, socially conscious STEM workforce. This gives way to local innovation and aids the growth of STEM Industries in South Florida.
Rome was not built in a day, and turning South Beach into Silicon Beach will be no different. As a nonprofit organization, we cannot implement change without people that identify with our mission supporting our cause.
Whether you are a student in college, a busy parent, or a socially conscious business owner there are many ways you can help us turn our vision into a reality.
Thanks to your generous support, our programs remain free to all participants.
