Tomorrow’s Leaders Children’s Program
Our children’s program at our Overtown and West Homestead site focuses on inspiring, educating, and empowering children. We operate in the after school hours Monday through Friday in the school year and all day on most Teacher Planning Days, Spring Break, and Summer.

As a faith-based organization, we offer weekly Devo Times in the school year and once a week in the Summer. As we welcome all children, we introduce them to our God who made them and loves them.
STEAM- Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics
We host enrichment sessions for science experiments, coding, engineering projects, creative arts, and math enrichment. Our creative arts programming includes visual arts, performing arts, and culinary arts exposing our students to lots of new opportunities. Partnership enriches our program with the following past and present partners: Perez Art Museum, Miami Symphony Orchestra, FLIPANY, and many local artists.
With literacy classes led by certified teachers at each site, qualified grade-level instructors, and reading interventionists we support students educationally. We also offer time for homework help,individualized tutoring, school supplies, and support for school projects.
Exploring our great city and learning new things is the goal of our field trips. We host several trips throughout the year on Teacher Planning Days, Spring Break, and others. Field trips are hosted weekly during Summer programming.
We provide daily time for fitness and sports programming to ensure healthy lifestyles using the evidence-based Sparks.
Our goal is to break barriers to create higher expectations, establish a pattern of positive attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors regarding school and education. Impacting student achievement is a complex issue that requires both long-term commitment and diverse strategies. Our staff bridge the divide between home, school, and TML as we are in our partner schools daily working with students and coordinating with teachers as we seek to improve grades, school attendance and ultimately graduation rates.
