Volunteers provide one-to-one mentoring to students on a weekly basis. For over 30 years our mentoring partner, the Listeners/Oyentes, has provided services to Miami Dade County Public Schools. Our goals are to help youth overcome negative feelings about themselves, stay in school, and become successful individuals.

Student Achievement Program
During the school year, middle school students are given trophies, gifts, class parties, and other incentives to promote academic excellence and regular attendance. Awards ceremonies are
held at the end of each grading period to reward students who demonstrate improvement in academics. Additionally, the winner of the interclass competition for Attendance receives a class party and retains the Attendance Trophy.
Our school garden project connects classroom learning with real world experiences. Students engage in STEM education as they explore plant selection, nutrition, climate conditions, and the environment. A project based learning approach gives students an opportunity to utilize math, science, writing, and technology skills.
In an effort to improve student achievement and promote continued learning, students have an opportunity to apply for scholarships to pursue higher education.
