The Key West Educational Foundation is dedicated to promoting education in the diverse aspect of life among young adults in the Key West area and surrounding communities.  Our mission is to educate our young adults with topics that will prepare them to overcome life challenges in a positive manner.  We believe that exposing our future generation to a wide variety of topics with different point of views will spark their curiosity and creativity to inspire them to develop to their full potential.  In addition to seminars, workshops, and speaking engagements, we will also promote literature among a variety of topics.  These exposures will allow young adults to explore topics on different fields of work to expand their knowledge so they can follow a career path to what interests them most.  Our aim is to provide available resources, while also promoting accountability, responsibility and overall good citizenship.

 

From our founder, Maria Garcia:

My name is Maria Garcia, and I live in Key West Florida. I am an extremely curious, and fun loving person. I am a proud mother of two adult sons, one young adult daughter and four grandchildren. (Yes, I am a grandmother!) I am an Assistant Store Manager for CVS/Pharmacy. I am very involved in the local recruiting and hiring process.

I am also the founder of Key West Educational Foundation. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting education in the diverse aspect of life among young adults in the Key West area and surrounding communities. Our mission is to educate our young adults with topics that will prepare them to overcome life challenges in a positive manner. In addition to seminars, workshops, and speaking engagements, we will also promote literature among a variety of topics. Our aim is to provide available resources, while also promoting accountability, responsibility and overall good citizenship.

I am moved by compassion, and have a big desire to help make a difference in people’s life whether is at work or on a personal level. I believe we can make a difference right were we are regardless of our economic status or position. I am passionate about leadership, customer service, personal development, personal transformation, marketing and social media.

I believe collaboration is the key to success in life therefore I love to interact and partner with other people in their journeys whenever possible.

I think life is too short to not be happy. I try to find fulfillments in the small things life offers us and see opportunities to grow with every challenge. I believe our mind is the compass that guides us to prosperity, inner peace, and love, which is essential to achieve a good life and work balance.

I don’t take life too seriously; we only have one life to live so why not make it a good one! I love to meet and interact with people from all walks of life. I think I can relate to most people because I truly care about people, appreciate our diversities, commonalities and differences.

I am always asking my self two questions? How can I be of help? How can I be of value?

My motto is: be kind to those around you without expecting anything in return.
