Achieve Summer

This six-week program engages rising elementary students in high-quality academic and enriching summer experiences, while empowering and developing the capacity of high school students, and leadership of professional educators in Miami-Dade. The students, or “Little Buddies,” begin working every day on culturally relevant academic projects led by teachers and spend afternoons attending art, music, culinary, wellness, and STEM classes with their teen mentors or “Big Buddies.” Educators and interns receive daily professional development and a re-imagined coaching cycle to ensure that every member of our program grows and becomes a better leader.

 

Note: Achieve Miami’s in-person summer program was cancelled during Summer 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will update our Achieve community in Spring 2021 about our ability to operate in-person programming in Summer 2021.
