What did your kids do during their summer vacation? Some South Florida high school students gave up a week of their break to learn how to break down barriers. They participated in a six-day residential program that brought together teens from across Miami-Dade county for an experience called “Metrotown”. “Metrotown” was made possible by the non-profit known as M-C-C-J.
