Developing Brighter Futures

Miami Dade College has been selected as one of only 12 U.S. colleges to participate in the Walmart Brighter Futures 2.0 Project, which aims to provide low-income youth and adults with the skills necessary to obtain middle-skill jobs, enabling them to become financially self-sufficient. The project is supported by a generous $3.5 million grant from the Walmart Foundation to the League for Innovation.

Miami Dade College will work with the League to develop programs and services to move low-income, low-skilled individuals into higher-paying jobs requiring greater skills. The League then will disseminate the best practices from the project to other colleges around the country.
