mandela cultural fellowship
To ignite and amplify the centenary year of Nelson Mandela and his passionate purpose to inspire global activism. RedFlight strongly believes that providing hope and a vision of what is possible is perhaps the strongest gift one can give to another. This academic and cultural scholarship aims to spark learners to dream big and know that through commitment and passionate service to the community, anything is possible when you are aligned with a higher purpose for your life.
The scholar will also collaborate with Creative Visions and Rock Your World, a non-profit organization in California dedicated to social activism, to activate an advocacy program that helps solve human-rights struggles, using media and the arts.
WE CULTIVATE TOMORROW'S ETHICAL TECHNOLOGISTS
Through our collaboration with the Mandela family in the Eastern Cape to our STEM camps, we are committed to designing and administering custom programs in communities most in need of mentorship. We believe that by introducing computer science fundamentals with a cross-discipline approach that includes design, leadership and altruism, we are ensuring that we are inspiring children and young adults how to be ethical futurists.
Through both our Access to Innovation STEAM Programs and Leadership Programs, our goal is to empower the brightest students with a humanitarian spirit to use 21st century skills to be a positive influence in business, arts and sciences.
