MKT Recap: January 27th Youth Empowerment Summit

On January 27th, the 4th Annual Youth Empowerment Summit brought the community’s kids and young adults together for a day of entrepreneurship and leadership at Goombay Plaza. Neighborhood organizations, like George Washington Carver Elementary, The START Program, The Teaching Heart Foundation, the Thelma Gibson Health Initiative, the Coconut Grove Church of Christ,  and many others, collaborated on interactive activity booths and family-centric entertainment on this sunny Grove afternoon.

Updates to our community mural also came alive, as local artist Wendell Mc Shine collaborated with University of Miami School of Architecture, The Home Team, The START Program, and The Barnyard – Coconut Grove Cares to create the Goombay Plaza mural funded by MIAMI REALTORS.
