The South Florida Youth Foundation’s mission is to assist Miami-Dade County Public School students who are challenged by poverty with their basic needs so that they may continue their education with dignity as every child deserves.

South Florida Youth Foundation has partnered mostly with “Project UP-START,” the Homeless Education Program of M-DCPS in order to assist homeless students with backpacks, uniforms, food, shoes, and sweaters for cold weather. Additionally, the South Florida Youth Foundation is involved in sponsoring homeless students to attend their Senior activities including Senior Prom, Grad Bash, and Senior picnics which otherwise the students would not be able to afford.

The South Florida Youth Foundation also assists with extracurricular expenses that might arise for students, such as times when they qualify for a competition out of the area, but do not have the funds to attend. We strive to give our students in transition as much stability in their school lives as possible since they do not have that opportunity at home.
