Taking Back the FutureTARIK BLACK FOUNDATION reimagined…
We curate innovative youth programs.
Taking Back the Future programs provide youth both life-changing and practical learning experiences through access and exposure to enlightened individuals and the resources offered by cutting-edge businesses and institutions. Our programs are anchored by four important concepts: Wealth Creation, Global Affairs, Health Matters and Technology Impact.
Enlightenment in these areas will arm youth with important tools for navigating their lives. Our vision in the end is a world in which youth are well informed, well-rounded and well prepared to embrace the future.
SPORTS CAREERS The cancellation of this year’s internship due to COVID-19 was unexpected. However, the break in activities presented the chance to reimagine and refocus. Collaborating with new partnering organizations means new innovative experiences for youth.
The 2020 summer internship may have been interrupted but virtual technology offers countless ideas for curating a robust sports technology experience for youth. Details will be announced soon.
Summer GLAM (Girls’ Life Academy Memphis) We are excited to offer past Summer GLAM interns a virtual self-care experience in partnership with SOUL ABODE. During these uncertain times, taking care of mind, body and spirit is important. SOUL ABODE lessons and concepts will give these young ladies many tools for day-to-day well being.
In addition to a free self-care guide for all Summer GLAM interns, SOUL ABODE is offering ten scholarships for virtual life coaching. To learn more about SOUL ABODE, visit soulabode.com.
If you are a 2018 or 2019 intern and have not received your SOUL ABODE invitation, please send an email to email@example.com.
