PRIDE Museum Online Silent Auction Fundraiser to advance Technology and Science youth education
By: PRIDE Museum
T. Blackshear on ‘Ebony Vision’ Collection: “I always knew I wanted to create ‘Ebony Visions’. As an artist who happens to be black, I had distinct ideas about what I would like to see in the line.” The elegant compelling figurines he created for the collection are a blend of both Art Nouveau and African culture, which Thomas calls “Afro-Nouveau.”
“We are encouraged and gratified by the support received from the community for our youth education programs”, said Pamala Springs, Founder and Executive Director of PRIDE Museum. “Our fundraising efforts provide us with an opportunity to touch friends and patrons as we raise awareness and capital to accomplish our work of inspiring youth to explore careers in technology and science.”
PRIDE Museum is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization in motion that delivers exposure to youth (Grades K-12) on technology and science education with a focus on the contributions of African American innovators to Silicon Valley. Through leadership, education and support we inspire youth to embrace new concepts and emerging technology, build strong interpersonal skills, positive social friendships, establish goals, follow through on commitments, understand their obligation to contribute to the success of our society and instill a sense of hope in the future. PRIDE Museum Learning Programs are FREE to youth.
PRIDE Museum Programs present youth with the opportunity to experience innovation in a multitude of ways. Ongoing contact with a spectrum of Silicon Valley technology and science corporations, laboratories, museums, universities, etc., motivates youth to explore the remarkable prospects at hand and become further involved in their community and society. As a result of the leadership and exposure provided by PRIDE Museum, we become lifelong advocates for our membership, using our extensive network to bridge youth with opportunities and provide referrals and character references for their future involvement in volunteerism, internships, summer employment, technology organizations, higher education and career field.
