Caribbean Returning Nationals Foundation (CRNF), Inc. introduces the launch of the “Students for Students (SFSI)” website which aims to connect Caribbean students and young professionals into a support network that will facilitate their growth as global innovators, create an enhanced cultural awareness while providing a sense of community and offering career development resources to foster a commitment to the Caribbean development and investment. This is their platform to be creative and express themselves, says Arlene Graham, Founder and CEO of CRNF.
“SFSI website is a premier resource created to highlight, promote and advocate global Caribbean mentor and mentoring connections. We all benefit from the professional and academic networks we nurture through this website,” says Iesha Townsend, SFSI London Coordinator. Featured during SFSI’s 30-Minute Mentorship Interview Series is Ravi Gundlapalli, Founder and CEO, of MentorCloud a Silicon Valley-startup whose program was endorsed by Hillary Clinton.
“Caribbean students and young professionals finally have a place where they can get the resources they need to achieve both personal and professional success,” says Shedisha (Abby) Matthias, SFSI International Coordinator. The Caribbean Returning Nationals Foundation is an organization that aims to reverse the effect of the brain drain on the Caribbean. We use programs such as the Students for Students Initiative (SFSI) to reinvest knowledge and technical skills back into the Caribbean region. SFSI supports Caribbean youths and professionals to achieve their career development goals. Through our mentorship mechanism, youths and professionals create lifelong connections in efforts to develop a strong Caribbean community.
