Caribbean-American youth advocacy group, Transforming America Through Interaction, or TATI is accepting applications for their newly launched career mentorship program Bright Faces, in partnership with The Episcopal Church of Holy Family in Miami Gardens.
“The objective of TATI’s Bright Faces,” says Tanya Ragbeer, President of TATI, Inc., “is to introduce the students to professionals who not only look and sound like them, but are also making strides in the community. It’s phenomenal to hear the stories of success, failure, struggles and triumph that were presented, and to see the responses of the students.
“The program is designed to empower teens by introducing them to people that they normally would not have such intimate access to, and for them to learn first-hand from people in their chosen career fields.”
The program is focused on, but not restricted to teens of Caribbean heritage, and this year’s activities included field trips to locations such as the Miami Gardens City Hall, WAVS 1170 AM Radio, and Weston Animal Hospital. Bright Faces students engage with professionals in Finance, Retail Sales, Wholesale Manufacturing and Distribution, Arts & Culture, Government, Media & Communications, Health, and Education. The program also includes personal development coaching activities lead by Life Coach Tanya Ragbeer, and is designed to create self-awareness.
