Miami, June 28, 2021 – Miami Dade College’s (MDC) North Campus, in partnership with the Black bike group Break The Cycle, is hosting a Transformative Summer Program, June 28 through August 6.
The “Break The Cycle: Improving Lives. Building Futures” Transformative Summer Program is a six-week intensive cycling centered experience for youths ages 10-18 and offers a holistic approach to student enrichment and personal and academic achievement. The program focuses on cycling education and application, mindfulness, life skills, providing students with viable mentorship opportunities. In partnership with strong community stakeholders, such as the Center for Black Innovation, the Dibia Dream Foundation, Miami Urban Contemporary Experience (MUCE), and the University of Miami Sylvester Cancer Center, the program is invigorating, impactful, and innovative.
The camp will include an enrichment workshop involving technology, classroom resources, and career planning at MDC to further reinforce the value of pursuing higher education. It will also introduce families to the benefits of earning college credits through dual enrollment. Eligible students will have an opportunity to earn three college credits at no cost.
“At MDC, we prioritize accessibility to health and wellness education,” said North Campus Interim President Vazquez. “This summer program will provide Black students an all in one holistic approach through academic and support services that will allow them to earn college credits and excel in their communities.”
