Alabama Korea Education and Economic Partnership (AKEEP) has a primary mission to provide multilingual multicultural diversity education programs to the students and professionals of Alabama and Korea. The secondary mission is bridging the differences between institutions and corporations of Alabama and Korea for local economic prosperity as a global partnership facilitator. The Project aligns primarily the education for the focus of antipoverty economic opportunities. The Project will strengthen our organizational capacity to reach primarily low-income K-12 students who are qualitied for free to reduce lunch and teach them Korean as a Second Language (KSL) and provide Multicultural Diversity education through BUD [Bridge of Unity in Diversity] program.
VISTA members will contribute to the mission of AKEEP for VISTA Project by assisting our organization's Public Relations & Outreach in person and online social media platforms; coordinating K-12 schools especially of low income area’s students, families, and communities; researching for grant and fundraising opportunities for AKEEP’s programs and services; building and maintaining internal database for sound financial management system as well as all auditable documents. These activities will take place onsite during the entire project period.
