Mission Statement:

Program Purpose: To provide an educational resource for abused and neglected children in Miami-Dade County by recruiting the help of South Florida's most caring and enthusiastic people.

Program History:

What We Do: We match qualified adults with specific children in need of extra educational services in order to facilitate a supportive academic relationship. ACE’s are expected to act as a supplementary scholastic resource for their assigned youth, providing them with a reliable mentor, as well as a tutor.

Who We Serve: The children we work with are between the ages of 5 and 18, all of whom are currently within the foster care system of Miami-Dade County. The children vary in grade level, IQ, and learning/language impairment. All are currently enrolled in school, but in need of extra academic support.

How you can help: We are looking for reliable, enthusiastic, and capable adults. Volunteers should feel a strong desire to contribute to the academic advancement of at-risk youth, and feel comfortable acting as a positive role model. ACE’s should be compassionate, patient and have a sense of humor.

Hours of Availability: Volunteers are asked to donate a minimum of one hour per week.

Please call Jennifer Prats at 305-494-7243 or e-mail empowerastudent@voices4.org to facilitate scheduling.
We welcome any questions!
