Miami YFC: Why Does She Light Up a Room?


We would like to introduce the beautiful soul that is Erika*. Erika has been coming to KIX since elementary school. Even though she has longevity in the program, Erika often disappears for a while. This happened – again – this summer. She was unreachable until around October, when staff mentor Macrina texted her. Erika began […]

Our 6th Over the Edge event to stop youth violence has come and gone, but it wasn’t without its fun surprises!

I met Mel a few years ago – she was in 6th grade and one of the first kids to come to our afterschool program at Miami Springs Middle.  She was unapologetically interested in anime, Harry Potter, and dying her hair every color of the rainbow.  She wrote lyrics and didn’t mind putting herself out there […]
