Step-Up Suspension Diversion Program
Step-Up is a suspension diversion program created to provide a safe, productive space for youth who have been issued out of school suspensions. Program activities
are designed to address youth behavior in a supportive and empathetic manner
while ensuring student, parent, and program staff accountability. While in the
program, students will reflect on their actions and build their critical
thinking, conflict resolution, and problem solving skills to ensure personal
and academic success. Strategies to affect and change behavior include
Restorative Justice techniques, circles, and psychosocial groups.
Family Service Day 2016!
Service Day is an annual community engagement event organized by Success
University. The purpose of the event is twofold. Firstly, it is to galvanize
all those who live, work, or play within the City of Miami Beach in a day of
impactful service learning projects throughout the community. Secondly, the
event serves to inform the public about the many resources available within the
City, many of which are free of charge. On September 24, 2016, we held our
fifth annual Family Service Day, where over 250 people volunteered their time
for the betterment of the community while learning more about the services
offered therein. For additional information, please Link Coming Soon!. To see a
