About The Motivational Edge
1550 NW 36 Street, Miami, FL 33142, US
The Motivational Edge (ME) is a solutions-focused youth development agency that harnesses the power of culturally relevant arts and other platforms to enrich and transform young lives. ME implements a trauma informed approach which focuses on mentoring, job readiness, and life-skills development through the Arts, and Health & Wellness initiatives, to ensure that every youth is ready to contribute positively to their community. ME uses the arts as a motivational and therapeutic platform to serve a wide range of youth including those in the Child Welfare System, youth that are homeless, at-risk youth and youth in the Juvenile Justice System.
Academic programs include: After School Programs, Summer Enrichment Programs and small group instruction in math, science, reading or language arts, FCAT Preparation, SAT Preparation, and High School Placement Test Preparation. Through the utilization of individual and small group instruction, educators provide personalized instruction in a number of areas to meet the needs of our students.
The Motivational Edge offers musical instruction in the following areas, but not limited to: piano, voice, guitar, woodwinds, brass, drums, percussion and flute. As well, we incorporate music in our academic setting. Research indicates that music enhances a student’s ability to learn. Specific concepts are taught through song and rhythmic pattern, as studies consistently demonstrate increased retention with this methodology.
