Proudly recognizing distinguished South Florida seniors who have overcome considerable adversity in achieving high school graduation and college acceptance. Our annual ceremony, in collaboration with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Miami, honors two graduating high school seniors with generous awards towards their journey through college graduation.
Alongside our wonderful friends at South Florida After-school All-stars, we provide insightful enrichment and exciting experiences to under-served and under-resourced at-risk youth in the South Florida community. Each year, eighth graders from of our Miami-Dade County partner schools enjoy engaging in enlightening sociocultural experiences otherwise unavailable to them. Complete with classroom instruction as well as off-campus field trips, we feature at least one activation per month from September to June, ranging from performing and fine arts to sporting events and more. Our goal is to expose today's under-privileged students to the finer aspects of life as they #aspIRIE towards transforming their lives into better and more fulfilling tomorrow!
The Irie Foundation supported by our partner Jimmy John's seek to improve behavior, attendance, and course performance in at-risk youth. One of the areas in which IRiE is most passionate is in being able to encourage young people to stay in school and improve their grades.
