Who are you?

Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden's mission is to save tropical plant diversity by exploring, explaining and conserving the world of tropical plants. Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

How does this project impact the issue you selected?

Family programs educate children and families about the importance of local plants and ecosystems, and their role in conservation and sustainability. Engaging children in a positive experience in nature is a crucial step to making Miami a more sustainable urban environment. While planting an edible garden, making a recycled craft, providing habitat for pollinators, or meeting a real scientist, these programs provide tools, instruction and inspiration to apply in their homes.

What data points from The Our Miami Report does your project address?

Family programs at Fairchild will directly advance environmentally sustainable practices in Miami-Dade. Designed to educate and inspire families to recognize the importance of local ecosystems and their direct impact on conservation and sustainability, programs offer hands-on activities in recycling, gardening and promoting native ecosystems. Families leave with an improved appreciation for sustainable practices.

Please give examples of your project's success.

Family Programs at Fairchild are offered to 45,000 members and 300,000 visitors on an annual basis. Since this program began in September 2014, approximately 200 South Florida families have participated on a monthly basis, with an increasing number of repeat participants. Verbal feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and demand for additional programming is evident. A written survey is under development to formally incorporate feedback into future expansion.

The Rhythm Foundation was founded in 1988 with a mission to promote cultural awareness through the presentation of live music and related media programming. We have become a leading presenter of world music in the US.

How does this project impact the issue you selected?

Dance Band Night will be a consistent series that brings people together to share a love of dance and music, centered on specific social dance styles of greatest relevance to the diverse North Beach community. In its heyday, the historic oceanfront structure hosted dances for area senior citizens. Now the neighborhood is a melting pot of young South American and Caribbean residents. We will build an event that allows people of all ages to share a cultural experience, literally dancing together.

What data points from The Our Miami Report does your project address?

The series provides residents with a rich arts and cultural environment and sustains an artistic community. With the regular activation of the Bandshell, a cultural gem in the heart of a lively but underserved area, we will anchor a cultural scene in North Beach connecting with the new art cinema, the mama-y-papa restaurants, working with area musicians and dance schools. We will showcase the vitality of the area through the music and dance traditions of the diverse people who live there.

Please give examples of your project's success.

Dance Band Nights is modeled on the popular Midsummer Night Swing series in NYC’s Lincoln Center, with whom we have block-booked artists in the past. Ours is a new series, but we have worked at the Bandshell for more than ten years, and have just been awarded a contract by the City of Miami Beach to manage the facility year-round. With another series we produce, Big Night in Little Haiti, we have found the consistency to be key in building community and meaning links with neighborhood partners.

Naomi is a connector dedicated to creatively developing initiatives that spark conversation on diversity, encourage collaboration, and inspire action for positive social change. She is currently pursuing a Master's in Community & Social Change at UM.

How does this project impact the issue you selected?

As described by U of Michigan professors, intergroup dialogue “… represents a grassroots effort to meet one of the major challenges facing our democracy today: the lack of communication among diverse groups of people in schools … communities, and … workplace. By forging lines of communication among different elements of society, [it] helps to create a more just, harmonious, and strong democracy.” This approach can impact Civic Participation by developing a more empathic & collaborative culture.

What data points from The Our Miami Report does your project address?

To effectively address the “unmet needs of … residents,” CDM will focus on bringing people of all cultural & economic backgrounds together. CDM believes that part of feeling “connected … to the place they live” includes cultivating stronger connections between residents themselves. Since there are so many “transplants from out of the state or country” it’s very important to familiarize them with what makes our community unique; and what better way to do so than by dialoguing with local citizens?

Please give examples of your project's success.

CDM held an interactive kick-off event in Oct. ‘14, bringing together 150+ people of all ages & cultural backgrounds on a bicycle ride to learn about several positive social change efforts taking place in Overtown, Liberty City, & Little Haiti. We've also been developing partnerships with local schools & community-based organizations in order to connect with the largest network of residents possible for the initial photo-voice exhibit, & upcoming intergroup dialogue component of our initiative.

Next Generation: From Alienage to Belonging via Museum Programs

The Cuban Museum will gather a team of arts & education experts from Miami-Dade County to formulate a programs strategy that, when applied by any arts organization in the county, can help to close the gap between "foreignness" and "ownership" of community and city, starting with middle-school age children in Dade Public Schools.

Who are you?

We are the Cuban Museum, in existence since 1996, and about to inaugurate a permanent venue in Miami, for mid 2015. The Museum aims to become a major cultural organization in Miami-Dade County and nationally, as the museum of the Cuban Diaspora.

How does this project impact the issue you selected?

To be foreign, as opposed to be mainstream. To be transient as opposed to being rooted. To belong, to develop civic duty and ownership. The fact that more than half of the County's population is foreign-born, and that growth in arts attendance rose only 0.4% in 2013, reveals a divide that in part could be explained in terms of cultural "outside-ness". This project will generate a blueprint for addressing issues faced by all cultural NGOs in M-D through, a model that can be applied by other NGOs.

What data points from The Our Miami Report does your project address?

The 51.8% foreign born population.
The 0.4% growth in attendance in 2013.

Please give examples of your project's success.

100 Great Ideas Public Engagement Campaign

Miami is filled with smart, solution oriented citizens who care about their community and who would contribute to solving community and social issues in a public, collaborative forum if the barriers to engagement were lowered.

Who are you?

We are two female entrepreneurs, passionate about Miami, focused on democratizing conversations about community change. We want to facilitate increased civic engagement, solution generation, and collaboration for Miami.

How does this project impact the issue you selected?

We know there are few practical ways for Miamians to engage decision makers. For example, Commissioner meetings only allow a 2-minute comment, and are often seen as a tedious, elusive and low-impact experiences. We are lowering the bar to entry, inviting all people to contribute to the conversation, and then bridging the divide between community voices, synthesizing and highlighting the trends among hundreds of citizens, and bringing those great ideas to decision makers to engage with.

What data points from The Our Miami Report does your project address?

The Our Miami data highlighted extremely low historic volunteer and voter turnout in comparison to our peer cities. We must find new ways to engage people in their city’s future, and to lower the barriers to entry. By giving a low-lift way for people to contribute to the local social good, and by fostering a collaborative space for people to collaborate in local problem solving, we expand accessibility, increase participation, and foster community connection in a previously disconnected space.

Please give examples of your project's success.

The 1st campaign generated 150 ideas in less than 10 days, with more than 600 people in the group. We synthesized the results into a 21 page position paper and are now sharing it with local mayors, library leaders, foundations and relevant parties across Miami to demonstrate the power of community engagement and to infuse new ideas into their process. We made the report a public source of reference, and are finalizing an article featuring the best community ideas for The Huffington Post.

How does this project impact the issue you selected?

Miami has a vibrant non-profit ecosystem with major players who draw national attention for innovation. There is remarkable coordination among these institutions for tackling long-established problems.

Our world is changing rapidly and those with the least are impacted disproportionately. But the established organizations are not best suited to address needs that arise quickly. Their large size, long funding cycles, and complex procedures make rapid change difficult for leading non-profits.

What data points from The Our Miami Report does your project address?

Ignition Accelerator will clearly spur economic growth. It will also bolster civic engagement and raise volunteer and charitable participation through new avenues to participate for all.

The impacts are multiplied across each of the eight targeted segments as each graduating class will support multiple social venture organizations. There will be particular emphasis on health and safety, arts and culture, and education while creating economic and social benefit through effective programs.

Who are you?

The Miami Mentoring Collaborative is a partnership between BBBS’ Mentoring Resource Center and multiple non-profits and businesses to recruit and train volunteers, provide diverse volunteer opportunities and create a local culture of volunteerism.

How does this project impact the issue you selected?

The MMC will reduce inter-agency competition and maximize the number of qualified volunteers engaged in meaningful volunteer experiences. The MMC will launch its newest volunteer recruitment campaign during National Mentoring Month in January. So far 500 volunteer mentors and 50 agency staff have been trained. BBBS’ average match duration in 2013-14 was 31.2 months and the rate of retention was 68%. Using our proven models will increase community engagement through volunteerism in Miami.

What data points from The Our Miami Report does your project address?

Data points addressed by this project include Miami’s volunteer rate and young adult volunteer rate. Specific outcomes include such measures as numbers of volunteers recruited, numbers of volunteers trained, numbers of staff trained in volunteer recruitment and retention, number of new volunteers placed and resulting number of youth served. Through combining organizational resources and purposeful volunteer recruitment and retention strategies, we intend to create a culture of volunteerism.

Please give examples of your project's success.

Young persons who lack a strong relationship with a caring adult are much more vulnerable to academic failure and involvement in risky behaviors. BBBS has consistently documented statistically significant improvements in peer relationships, scholastic competency, grades and risk attitudes. Each year, BBBS/MRC generates 1500 volunteer inquiries. Collaborating to increase civic engagement through volunteering will achieve similar long term outcomes for a greater number of Miami-Dade youth.

Orchestra Miami is a professional, non profiit orchestra which exists to build community and educate through music. Founded in 2006 by Arti Dir Elaine Rinaldi, we have brought free concerts and educational programs to thousands of people in Miami.

How does this project impact the issue you selected?

Orchestra Miami is building an educational program of lasting importance for the children, as well as creating art for the whole community to enjoy. This program is an important part of the Miami Children's Initiative's Liberty City Renaissance, a Knight funded program, which uses the arts to give each child in Liberty City the tools and preparation necessary to be able to attend college.

What data points from The Our Miami Report does your project address?

This project addresses both access and participation. By bringing opera to Liberty City, all residents will have access to attend a great performance for free, and all children will have the opportunity to participate. Additionally, Orchestra Miami will bring performances of its other children's programs to the African Heritage Cultural Arts Center, so that the children and their families can enjoy and learn.

Please give examples of your project's success.

We have had children enrolled in the program since September. Most of the children suffer from ADHD, and have trouble sitting still and focusing. Their first inclination is to act out rather than speaking in turn. In the 10 weeks since they began, we have noticed that the children are calmer, more focused and engaged. Some of the girls said that, upon putting on their ballet leotards, that this was the first time they felt beautiful. These are significant success in a very short time.

Who are you?

The Wynwood Business Improvement District was created in 2013 thanks to the vision of neighborhood land owners. The BID works as a committee within the City of Miami to ensure that services are augmented to create lasting, positive change in Wynwood.

How does this project impact the issue you selected?

The Wynwood BID will continue to spearhead efforts to ensure that: 1) Wynwood becomes pedestrian/bike friendly; it will be walkable, have signs and maps, and be well lit at night; 2) Increased access to transportation (trolley; DecoBikes; better parking; alternative methods); 3) The Wynwood BID will continue to advocate at the city, state, and county levels for the betterment of Wynwood, including a new plan for denser residential development essential to a walkable city.

What data points from The Our Miami Report does your project address?

Interestingly, Wynwood is at the epicenter of arts in Miami, and this project addresses all eight areas of The Our Miami Report. We have chosen to focus discussion on the broad-based impact to transportation because Wynwood, like South Beach, has a unique opportunity to become Miami's most walkable neighborhood. We will partner with The Miami Foundation to ensure that the broadest public is aware of all efforts--current and future--to improve transportation throughout the 101 acres of Wynwood.

Please give examples of your project's success.

In only one year of operations, the Wynwood BID has:
- become an effective voice for the neighborhood with city, county, and state agencies and officials;
- improve safety and security through a partnership with police, and install cameras;
- establish one way streets; DecoBikes; and new crosswalks
- work with FP&L so that all streetlights work and new ones are added;
- provide Women of Wynwood street teams; and
- work with urban planners PlusUrbia to master plan oversights in Miami21.
