The Trayvon Martin Foundation was established by Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin in March 2012 as a not-for-profit organization under the auspices of the Miami Foundation. The Foundation’s purpose is to create awareness of how violent crime impacts the families of the victims and to provide support and advocacy for those families in response to the murder of Trayvon Martin. The scope of the Foundation’s mission is to advocate that crime victims and their families are not ignored in the discussions about violent crime to increase public awareness of all forms of racial ethnic and gender profiling educate youth on conflict resolution techniques and to reduce the incidences where confrontations between strangers turn deadly.
One of the main goals of The Trayvon Martin Foundation is to provide education opportunities to inn-city youth. This is accomplished by establishing partnerships with community, state and private college’s through-out the world. In addition, The Foundation provides scholarships, mentoring, financial literacy, S.T.E.M and parenting assistance.
The Trayvon Martin Foundation ongoing quality assurance process and driven approach is specific to help define and attain our goals. We will implement a check list. An analyst is used to tests and tweaks the process of development, curriculum and effectiveness to develop ways to improve overall quality. It is a highly detail-oriented system that translates into excellent communication.
From the time a person gets involved with the Foundation, they are welcomed as a part of the Trayvon Martin family. The Foundation desires to create measures that provide the child and parent with a clear direction/guidance for action steps that will lead towards successful. The Trayvon Martin Foundation will do this through collaborative agreements and partnerships with local schools, churches, fortune 500 companies, local business and community-based organizations world-wide.
The Trayvon Martin Foundation goal is to create violence prevention projects world-wide.
