The Start Off Smart (SOS) program, in collaboration with the City of Homestead Police, offers afterschool and summer programming to students residing in the deep South Miami-Dade community. The primary aim of this program is to equip students and their families with the necessary skills and knowledge for higher education, leadership development,
community engagement, and active involvement while also providing a safe and nurturing environment for the youth.
During both the school year and summer months, participants are offered access to a diverse range of activities and support. These activities include opportunities for peer socialization, promoting healthy lifestyles through basic and enhanced health programs, academic support to ensure success in their studies, engaging with technology and the
community, participating in physical activities, developing life skills, and receiving social-emotional support.
This program is funded by the Children’s Trust.
