SEEK Foundation Dedicates $4M Fund To Opa-Locka Community

S.E.E.K. Foundation’s SMART Tech Health Hub will provide families in Opa-Locka with a multifaceted space with access to STEM education.

A groundbreaking initiative from Miami’s S.E.E.K. Foundation, Inc. is set to transform the landscape of Opa-Locka, Florida, providing families in the community with unprecedented access to STEM education, workforce re-entry pathways, broadband connectivity, and essential health services.

“The partnership with the Miami Foundation’s Digital Equity Collective program has been pivotal in advancing this initiative,” said Anike Sakariyawo, Founder of S.E.E.K. Foundation, Inc. “We are looking to provide Opa-Locka community members of all ages access to educational resources and pathways to STEM careers.”

The multilevel building will provide dedicated spaces for S.E.E.K. Foundation’s educational programs in STEM on its first and second floors. Plans include a pipeline program tailored to specific industries like agriculture, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, coding, robotics, and UI/UX design. The third floor will cater to the community’s basic health needs, offering services such as annual vaccinations, back-to-school boosters, and telehealth. The goal is to partner with local public health entities, county health departments, and federally qualified health centers.
