Our project will give teenage refugees a safe place to honor the human condition. We will do this by, 1) coming together each week to strengthen our mind - body connection through the practice of ballet, 2) Incorporating music from around the world including natural sounds, 3) At the end of every class, we will incorporate a dance from each student's culture, highlighting the diversity and different meanings of dance, 4) we will open and close every class with wish/prayer for the earth, its animals, or its people.

We started work on this project in October by learning about how extreme poverty affects the lives of young people growing up throughout the world. We then started into taking action by making paper hands with message of support and uplift. For every hand we create and decorate with positive messages, the Bezos Family Foundation will donate $1.90—up to $500,000—to Save the Children’s programs empowering youth in Nicaragua and Indonesia to rise into a life they dream for themselves. The actual making of the hands is really quite easy and fun to do. We hope to share the project with other classrooms and at a community event in January.

My intention is to help the others to get more information about the truth behind the animal products consume and how harmful it is, both for animals and for human beings. I want you to take a little moment and read a little about this big international problem. (Mi intención es ayudar a los demás a informarse sobre la realidad detrás del consumo de productos animales y sobre lo perjudicial que es, tanto para animales como para humanos. Me gustaría que se tomase un momento para leer un poco sobre este gran problema internacional.)

We will have a special Dr. Goodall Day at the Mid-America Science Museum devoted to teaching youth about her life, work, accomplishments, and goals for the future. We will read several books about her and let the kids choose an activity they would like to emulate as Dr. Jane did in the Gombe. Observational skills with handmade binoculars will be a project in which they get to search areas around the museum they think they might find a chimp! After a day of learning and creating birthday cards for Dr. Goodall, the kids will celebrate!

Wynwood is a growing community where art is fostered and expanding. Being exposed to this as children and young adults will improve their creativity and relationship with humanities and liberal arts. We will be able to easily locate a bus stop on N. Miami Ave from Downtown right at the edge of the Wynwood District. We will also be more active, happier, healthier, more connected and safer when riding public transportation. We have applied to a non-fro profit Miami-Dade Quick Build Challenge where it could have the chance to have support and be implemented by the community! Progress will be updated.
