Give Miami Day

November 16th
Mark your calendar! Give Miami Day is the most active day of giving in South Florida ever. Last year, more than 10,000 donors gave $3.2 million to support 407 local nonprofits. Give Miami Day is a unique, online giving event that provides everyone in the community an opportunity to build a greater Miami through philanthropy. During the 24-hour period, The Knight Foundation, Miami Foundation and their partners will maximize the community's generosity by making a bonus gift for every donation between $25 and $10,000 received.

Ongoing Drives

This fall, many students will come to school hungry, homeless, ill-clothed, or lacking basic medical care. For many, these obstacles will prevent them from being able to regularly attend school. In order to remove barriers for our students, site coordinators maintain a school supply closet, hygiene closet, and food pantry at each school. We also provide ties for the boys in our programs. We need support to replenish items for students and their families.

Report Card Conferences (RCC) is an initiative that grants students the opportunity to have an adult sit down for an open conversation about their grades. The reality is that many of our under-served students receive report cards, but lack the presence of a positive adult role model who provides guidance or praise about their academic achievement. As a result, many of our students lack motivation, concern, and interest in excelling academically. RCC takes place quarterly and consist of four two hour sessions. Mentors can participate throughout the entire day or select specific sessions. During each session, mentors are responsible for conducting brief one-on-one conferences to discuss the student's academic performance, behavior, and attendance. The mentor will be provided with conference materials and will be given a brief training prior to the conferencing session.

Speed Mentoring allows employees to engage in a mentoring experience and give back to their community in a couple of hours. During this 3-4 hour event, students will be exposed to a new career and gather knowledge from skilled professionals. Students and employees are matched up for three minutes. When the bell rings, mentors rotate through the room to the next student. During the three minutes-or-so the mentors have with each student, they share a bit about their career, pass on some tips and answer any questions before moving on to the next student. After the speed mentoring, students are often given a tour of the facility and lunch.

Financial Literacy Boot Camps help build a solid foundation for financial literacy that provides important life skills for students before they move out on their own. Providing money management skills for students can proactively address many of the money decisions and issues they'll face as adults. The Real Money Financial Literacy Boot Camp brings community volunteers/sponsors from various business sectors such as housing, car dealerships, higher education, banking and credit, insurance, communications, entertainment/retail, health and fitness, to offer services/products to students. Students will rotate among the booths with an assigned budget to procure their basic needs while staying within their budget. Join us in setting the foundation for our students to live a financially healthy life.
