Education & Youth Development
Miami Children's Initiative (MCI) is a place-based cradle to career initiative that seeks to facilitate and catalyze effective, sustainable transformation in one of South Florida's most challenging and promising neighborhoods - Liberty City. MCI's mission is to create a community-based network that develops, coordinates, and provides quality education, accessible health care, youth development programs, opportunities for employment, and safe neighborhoods for children and families residing in Liberty City. We engage a broad cross section of residents and stakeholders in moving towards the vision of a prosperous, healthy community for Liberty City's children and families. Miami Children's Initiative was created in 2006 and initially funded by the Florida Legislature in 2008 as one of three large scale social change efforts within the state of Florida.
