The Foundation has created a Community Alliance Advisory Board comprised of well-established educators and entrepreneurs in Panama City to act as a liaison between it and the community.  These advisors will be tapped into the issued faced by the community and will generate ideas on how the Institute may be able to benefit the community.

Meet our Community Alliance Advisory Board:
