Little Havana MOVES: Kick-off/ Lanzamiento and Mapping Workshop This Saturday
Each year the members of Public Allies Miami develop Team Service Projects (TSPs) in order to complete their year of service. These TSPs are an opportunity for the Allies to learn about a particular community within Miami and strategize ways they can help strengthen that community. This post was contributed by the Little Havana TSP group as a reflection on their project and an invitation to join them in celebrating the neighborhood of Little Havana.
Over the past nine months, Los Allies Unidos--the AmeriCorps Public Allies in Little Havana--have been connecting with community leaders and stakeholders to create a unique and lasting project in Little Havana. During this time, they have practiced Asset-Based Community Development and focused on building a stronger community from the inside out. They were happy to find assets everywhere: in community-based organizations, informal associations and individuals.
Los Allies Unidos are excited to partner with ConnectFamilias, Catalyst Miami and other community-based organizations to co-create this unique project in the community.
