North Miami, FL – 6/12/2019

During a luncheon scheduled for Thursday, June 13, at the Gwen Margolis Center, the City of North Miami will honor 27 teens who successfully completed its 3rd Annual Leaders in Training Program (LIT).   

Before an audience of peers, City of North Miami elected officials, administration and staff, certificates of completion will be presented to local teens graduating from the 10-week college and government career preparatory program.

In 2016, LIT was conceptualized by North Miami’s District 4 Councilman, Alix Desulme, Ed.D. College Readiness Access and Motivational Services, Inc. (CRAMS) facilitated weekly lectures focused on workplace etiquette, professional attire, resume writing, career interest identification and job skills assessing. Presentations by North Miami’s elected officials and City administrators, introduced LIT Program participants to the inner-workings and leadership structure of their local government. 

The program serves as a pipeline and pre-requisite for teenage North Miami residents to transition into paid positions through the City’s signature Youth Opportunity Board (YOB) Summer Internship Program. More than one dozen 2019 LIT Program Graduates will transition into North Miami’s YOB Internship Program this year. The YOB Internship program is open to residents in grades 9–12.
