Educate Tomorrow is meeting a crucial need in Miami and has been recognized nationally for its design of a replicable model program. In 2010, The White House recognized Educate Tomorrow as a top 20 “Program of Promise” during National Mentoring month. And in March 2013 College Board, Advocacy and Policy Center awarded Educate Tomorrow with the 2013 Innovation Award for the Southern Region of the United States.

Educate Tomorrow’s Miami program steers these young people toward independence by providing one-on-one educational mentors for both current and former foster youth and other disadvantaged students. It has been found that youth like those in Educate Tomorrow’s program, who are the most disadvantaged and have high numbers of risk factors, benefit the most from mentoring programs. Our volunteers are community members willing to mentor these youth and assist them in the process of completing high school, applying to college or technical school and succeeding in obtaining a degree. Through one-on-one mentoring, education success events, college tours, life-skills and direct education support, Educate Tomorrow is changing lives using education.

Currently more than 90% of Educate Tomorrow’s youth are currently enrolled in an educational institution or gainfully employed. Over the nine years of our operations, our mentors have successfully guided youth to (1) complete their high school diplomas, (2) to complete the associate’s degree and certificate programs, (3) to obtain their bachelor’s degrees and (4) to obtain Master’s degrees.
