Campus - The Motivational Edge

OPENING SEPTEMBER 2018

WATCH THIS SPACE FOR UPDATES!

 
As The Motivational Edge approaches the celebration of 10 years serving South Florida’s under-resourced youth, we look forward to the opening of our brand-new Allapattah Campus in the Summer of 2018. Our new Campus will be a safe, supportive environment designed to celebrate students’ achievements and unleash their imaginations! This state-of-the-art, multipurpose creative space will allow students to delve into our Arts, Technology, and Health & Wellness programming, while holding academics in high regard, with all students earning a “C” or below in a core subject required to participate in no-cost tutoring. The Campus will feature a technology space, where students can explore audio and visual production, graphic design, coding and even 3D Printing; a convertible art studio/gallery, perfect for hosting student exhibitions and community events; indoor and outdoor spaces for physical activity and play, including dance, yoga, martial arts, and team sports; and so much more! This Campus will be one-of-a-kind in Miami-Dade County, empowering local youth to engage in positive self-expression, develop essential life skills, and become thriving future leaders in our community.

Solutions-Focused Programming At Allapattah Campus

With the recent launch of our Sports & Wellness initiative, our new Campus will include a dedicated space for physical activity including dance, martial arts, yoga, a field equipped for basketball, tennis, football, soccer, and outdoor play. By enabling youth to engage in healthy, active lifestyles, the Campus will offer a safe and fun outlet for students' energy, while empowering them to develop skills in discipline, teamwork and leadership.

A state-of-the-art audio-visual technology space will empower our students to produce original videos, record and mix their own songs, and design contemporary graphics, equipping them with hands-on experience suitable for a college education or career in the technology-driven creative industry. Connected to a Whisper Room for vocal recordings, this space will offer boundless opportunities for youth to gain real-world skills in multiple disciplines while engaging in teamwork, computer literacy, self-expression and more.

· Coding · 3D Printing · Audio and Visual Production

Our Music Production program teaches students the fundamentals of beat-making, pre-production, and audio engineering, offering technology-focused musical experiences beyond the scope of a traditional arts curriculum. By providing real-world, hands-on experience with professional software and technology, this program prepares youth for college, an internship, or a career in the music industry – maybe even a position at The Motivational Edge!

A multipurpose studio and gallery space will allow youth to create, display and/or perform their works of art, while enabling the Campus to welcome community events such as Art Basel, Art Miami, and other local festivals and exhibitions. This highly versatile space will allow youth to build self-confidence through the exhibition and celebration of their own works, as well as engage with the wider Miami artistic community, offering opportunities for networking, discovery, and endless imagination.

In conjunction with our arts programs, which have demonstrated improvement in students’ academic success, we provide youth with opportunities for homework assistance, test prep, and general tutoring to assist with any core subject, assignment, or project. Our instructors work with youth not only to improve academic performance, but also to set personal goals, incorporate creative activities, and motivate long-term success. At our new Allapattah Campus, students receiving a C or below in a core subject will be required to participate in our tutoring programs, ensuring that they are motivated to succeed and preparing them for a brighter future.
