City Year Miami Young Heroes Program

This video recaps City Year Miami’s Young Heroes program. The program engaged more than 100 underserved Miami middle school students in service learning.

Young Heroes took place at our office in downtown Miami. The morning portion consisted of a curriculum about one of the issues affecting our students in their communities and neighborhoods. Then, after lunch, our students completed service projects over Miami-Dade County that tied into what they learned in the morning.

In 2010, Young Heroes collectively gave 10,462 hours of service to Miami over the course of 16 program Saturdays. Over the course of the program year, the Heroes learned about homelessness from formerly homeless individuals via the Miami Coalition of the Homeless, planted an organic garden for a horticultural therapy program at Troy Academy, learned about the Holocaust from a holocaust survivor at the Miami Beach Holocaust Memorial, and painted murals at a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center in Allapattah, among many other things.

The Young Heroes program wrapped up operations following the 2012-13 school year. The model still lives, though. Recently, a City Year Los Angeles alumnus, with City Year’s blessing, started Big Citizen HUB. The Big Citizen model mirrors the Young Heroes model and engages LA area middle school students in service learning. For more information on the program and the model, check out ..thebigcitizenhub..
