Youth Development

YWCA Miami believes it is our responsibility to open the world and build tolerance and acceptance for our students beyond their zip code. 

Funded by United Way Miami-Dade, the Global Education Program is an opportunity for students ages 4-12 to use current events to connect them to what is going on around their neighborhoods and the world around them.

Our after-school enrichment program funded in part by the Children’s Trust and other partners provide:

  • art
  • community service projects
  • financial literacy
  • global education
  • homework assistance
  • literacy development
  • nutrition
  • social and emotional learning

Clubhouse provides a creative, safe, and free out-of-school learning environment where young people from underserved communities work with adult mentors to explore their own ideas, develop new skills, and build confidence in themselves through the use of technology.

We are part of the Clubhouse Network which is an international community of 100 Clubhouses located in 18 countries, providing youth with life-changing opportunities for 25 years.

In partnership with Music Access Fellowship incubated by Radical Partners,and music enthusiast Daniel Lewis, and our partners at Eyes On Your Mission, YWCA Miami announces the Arts Through Social Justice Fellowship.

The Music Access Fellowship supports our music studios and Clubhouse and hopes to inspire and train young people in the artistic, practical and conceptual skills of music theory, performance, sound manipulation and broadcasting.

Through the 2019 Eyes On Your Mission (EOYM) free video grant opportunity, YWCA Greater Miami Dade, Inc. is one of seven innovative nonprofit organizations that will receive video production services worth upwards of $10,000-25,000 each. Annually, the EOYM free video grant empowers community stakeholders with new media production experiences that truly make a difference.

Through this program we will engage 40 students, ages 13-18 across our Miami Gardens and Downtown campuses.
