Community Service Projects
Materials for Learning Kids
The Materials for Learning Kids Project is sponsored by Miami Dade College Medical Campus and its Center for Community Involvement. In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we continue his legacy of “community service”. The goal of this project is to teach community school-aged children about safety, health awareness, and provide information on Allied Health & Nursing careers. Additionally, health-related Service-Learning presentations will be conducted throughout the academic year. Also, classroom teachers will be provided a treasure box of donated school supplies containing materials such as writing paper, pencils, crayons, protractors, erasers, rulers, pencil sharpeners and safety scissors. A health and safety packet will be given to each student via the Service-Learning component of this project. Shadowlawn Elementary School, located in Little Haiti, with over 400 students, is the 4th school to benefit from this joint venture during the Fall/Spring semester.
If you would like to assist with this project by donating school supplies or conducting a Service-Learning presentation at Shadowlawn Elementary School then contact Lester West at (305) 237-4114, Darlene Berger at (305) 237-4134 or Jackie Hernandez at (305) 237-4124.
