My Jumpstart to Independence - South Miami on March 25, 2022



The groundbreaking My Jumpstart to Independence conference in the Pinecrest area served 39 youths, providing them with an event featuring small group activities, 1-on-1 mentoring, and networking opportunities. The youth were able to partake in several topics discussing communication skills and budgeting strategies. Attendees were then able to apply this knowledge in our revolutionary “Real world Experience” workshop where our young adults would create a realistic monthly budget based off of actual salaries and expenses in their area. Organizations like Sunshine Health and Gamebred Youth had booths in which they would make connections with the youth and share their amazing resources. After the event, the venue was transformed into fairgrounds. Games, snacks, music, and even a gaming bus were some parts of our amazing fair. This event provided attendees with a chance to get themselves ready for adulthood and put them on the road to success! Can’t wait to see you at the next one! Still on the fence? Just listen to what the youth have to say: “MJS helped me get a better understanding of how it really is in the real world “, “It was GREAT and educational! I had so much fun”, “The best part for me were the SPEAKERS. They were very informative “
