Ring the Alarm. SoundOut is Here.

For the second consecutive year, the Family Leadership Training Institute (FLTI) will provide an opportunity for teenagers in Miami-Dade to have their voices heard on issues that matter most to them. On Tuesday, September 25th, the youth component of FLTI, “SoundOut” will welcome its fifth class at Booker T. Washington High School.

“SoundOut,” which is facilitated by Catalyst Miami staff, Public Allies and VISTA AmeriCorps members, will provide a space for teenagers to explore issues related to community involvement, education and school improvement all while enhancing the students’ leadership, project design and development skills during the 22-week series. This year, students will address issues surrounding stereotypes, decision-making and so much more.
The after-school “SoundOut” series will also be held at Miami Beach Senior High beginning October 10, 2012. We are looking forward to hearing all that the students have to bring to the conversation this year!
