Miami Dade College (MDC) will host an in-depth conversation with federal officials and local leaders to generate community-grown solutions that ensure children, youth, and their families are safe, healthy, and active in their community.

The forum will include workshops and round-table discussions to reach out to overlooked, disenfranchised Hispanic communities that have not been part of the National conversation. The Hispanic Summit will also study the areas of family and community safety, early childhood development, health and wellness, emotional and behavioral health, and education and career pathways, to ensure Hispanic children have the best opportunities to achieve their maximum potential.
