The Broad Residency 2013-2015


I have a passion to make a positive impact on society, and I believe the most powerful impact one can make is to help disadvantaged youth reach their full potential through a quality education. Growing up in a low-income community, I witnessed the role education can play in unleashing the potential of those least likely to succeed.

Working with Chicago Public Schools, Tamara Prather served as Manager, Strategic Projects during The Broad Residency.
