About Achieve Miami

Achieve Miami operates four core programs.

Achieve Saturdays are a unique experience where over 400 “Little Buddies” in grades 2-5 read, write, and share one-on-one with their “Big Buddy” mentors. Mentors are high performing role model students from neighborhood public and private high schools dedicated to helping young students fall in love with reading. Two Saturdays a month, buddies come together as a team at our four partner elementary schools, build meaningful relationships, and growing as leaders and readers.

Achieve Summer is a six-week summer program which engages over 420 rising K-5th graders and 300 high schoolers in stimulating academic learning, varied enrichment activities, and a mentorship program to ensure a joyful and meaningful summer experience. Educators and interns receive daily professional development and a reimagined coaching cycle to ensure that every member of our program grows and becomes a better leader.

UP! Music is based on the premise that every child deserves a quality music education, and provides daily after-school instruction in vocal, orchestral, and band skills for over 180 elementary and middle schoolers, plus community service, internships, and leadership development for high schoolers, as well as professional development for music educators.

The College and Career Readiness Cohort (CRC) provides personalized college readiness support for high school students in underserved schools, while also engaging them as important contributors to their communities through service opportunities, leadership development, mentoring, and paid employment.
