Who We Are
At Educate Tomorrow we serve Miami-Dade County's foster care youth, and strive to make education an attainable goal for even the most disadvantaged.
This percentage of our youth population has a severe deficiency in educational achievement levels with approximately 50% testing at or above grade level by the age of 17, and only 54% passing their grade level FCAT[i]. These foster youth are primarily racial minorities living in high-need, high-risk neighborhoods, and attending low-achieving schools.
Educate Tomorrow's program serves this neglected demographic, Miami-Dade youth and young adults between the age of 14 and 24 who are or have been in foster care, by providing resources like intensive skill-building workshops, academic support and enrichment activities, and most importantly, a multi-year, goal-oriented mentoring approach.
