Focus On South Florida: Big Brothers Big Sisters

Volunteerism encourages people to empower, share and love. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Miami is the area’s premier mentoring organization. It is donor and volunteer-supported. Sadly, according to the latest survey results from the Corporation For National and Community Service, Miami ranks last for volunteerism of the top 50 metropolitan cities in the U.S. We focus on the importance of volunteering and hear from a South Florida man who has been doing it for 15 years.

Focus on South Florida: Yoga Gangsters

Kids in crisis are kids in need. They are stuck in a system that runs on survival–food, clothing, shelter, safety. But once the bare necessities are met, then what? A Miami-based nonprofit thinks it has the answer.
This organization reaches out to at-risk youth in South Florida, and in 10 states from New York to Texas. And it does so in a rather unorthodox manner. Through yoga. Even its name raises eyebrows. Yoga Gangsters. We focus on what the program is and how it works.

Autism spectrum disorder is the fastest growing serious developmental disability in this country. It is now diagnosed in one in every 68 children, including one in 42 boys. “Autism Speaks” is the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization. Its 2014 Broward Walk raises money for families and individuals affected by autism. In fact, “Walk Now For Autism Speaks” is the single most powerful event to raise critically needed funds for research and awareness. We focus on what the organization does, and the all-important upcoming walk.
