News Flash - YLD Miami-Dade



ASPIRA of Florida



Welcome to the YLD Miami-Dade Division

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Youth Leadership Development (YLD) Miami-Dade Division. The agency started its YLD operations 30 years ago in Wynwood- the historic Puerto Rican neighborhood of Miami. Over the years the operations expanded its YLD programming to Broward and Palm Beach Counties (Southwest Florida is currently being developed) and Charter Schools throughout Miami-Dade. The YLD Miami-Dade Division services the Homestead/Leisure City, Liberty City, Little Haiti, Miami Beach, North Miami, Overtown, and Wynwood communities.

As the Director of the M-D Division, I am excited about what 2012-2013 has to offer. We look forward to continuing to serve at-risk youth at the middle school, high school and college levels. This year we have stretched ourselves to also provide excellent service to college students.

We know that in this field you must not "live a lukewarm life, but one with passion" as our founder Dra. Antonia Pantoja once stated. Therefore, we commit ourselves to our ASPIRANTES - to empowering them to reach and exceed their educational potential. We put our own desires aside while those of Miami-Dade's youth & families take center stage.

I look forward to a year of new beginnings and educational excellence.
