"The Melbourne and Michael Folkes Foundation to me means that I should be Mighty In Character. It encourages me to be strong in everything I do. It helps me to be confident in myself and in everything I do. It helps me to believe in myself and to do my school work. It also helps me to achieve my goals and set them the right way. It also encourages me to build my faith, joy and peace."
Our Purpose-Driven Cultural Student Experience Program will create a pathway that bridges the gap between Jamaica and the United States. We believe this will show, enlighten, encourage, and communicate with children in our local and global communities. The program will allow students to travel to the United States for 2- 3 weeks during which time they will be visiting and learning from different business owners and professionals from various companies across several industries. We believe this will also provide opportunities that will invoke changes in them that are positively impactful in a profound way. We believe that inspiration, motivation, hope and ambition will ignite to new levels of determination and success within our future leaders.
