During their two months in Miami, students worked with Unidad Miami Beach, a non-profit organization that provides services to the Miami-Dade area, a county with 46% foreign-born population. For the first month, our students assisted with the New Generation Leadership and Workforce Institute in Miami Beach as workshop facilitators and mentors to the high school youth. Two students continued working with Unidad in a variety of ways for the second month, while others began new internship placements with FANM, Inc; Americans for Immigrant Justice; and Catholic Charities Legal Services. What follows are some of their summer postings on the experience.
