Today’s Leaders Youth Development Program
Our youth program at our Overtown and West Homestead site focuses on inspiring, educating, and empowering youth. We operate in the after school hours Monday through Friday in the school year for academic support as well as evenings for programming. In addition to our school year program elements our summer program includes youth employment and trips outside of Miami for service and exposure to new opportunities.
Read on to learn about the multiple program elements in our holistic program to middle and high school youth.
As a faith-based organization, we offer students the option to join our weekly Bible Study. As we welcome all youth we share how Christ’s spirit will help us to be in the world but not of it.
We support academic achievement with time every afternoon and access to technology. We also offer SAT/ACT tutoring, school supplies, incentives for grades, and support for school projects.
Each week we present fun, interactive activities Social Skills lessons to youth to create higher expectations, establish a pattern of positive attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors regarding themselves, others, and their community.
Each night our evening programming begins with a full sit down dinner for all youth at both locations. Designed to re-create the family dinner hour meals shared over conversation encourage youth as they navigate life circumstances.
Creative Arts sessions give youth the opportunity to explore, create, and dream.
