About Us

Our Mission 

The Caribbean Network is an organization that aims to provide accessible professional and leadership development opportunities for youth within the Caribbean community. We aim to challenge traditional frameworks of oppression through education, empowerment and innovation.  One of our main goals for this year is to create job shadowing opportunities for youth to emphasize the value of practical skills, networking and social capital. 

We are the leaders of tomorrow, let's begin working together.
