Youth Leadership is our Mission

CityKids Coalition has been in our DNA since CItyKids was founded  in 1985.

Our new Coalition is run by former CityKids and our Executive Team with the goal of gathering and empowering young leaders to take control of their narrative and assert their power and creative vision.


Miami Art Week

In partnership with the Lincoln Road BID, HVY, IMMUSE and Seva.Love, CityKids held workshops and panels, and created a large scale collaborative art project to coincide with the "Speak on Liberty" banner on display during Miami Art Week and Art Basel in December.

We now send critical groceries and teach digitally directly into the homes of our families!
