City Year Miami‘s annual “Paint the Town Red” a is one of South Floridaâ€™s premier social events, uniting hundreds of influential community leaders to celebrate the achievements of 212 young men and women who have pledged a year of service to support students in Miamiâ€™s highest-need schools. Wearing their signature red jackets, City Year Miami AmeriCorps Members serve as tutors, mentors, and role models to more than 6,500 students in 18 Miami-Dade County Public Schools. AmeriCorps Members arrive before the first bell rings and stay until the last student goes homeâ€“helping to transform a schoolâ€™s culture with passion, energy and idealism. Working side-by-side with teachers, they use research-based tools and techniques to help students improve their attendance, behavior, and course performance in math and English. City Year is the only national organization placing full-time, trained young adults in schools to provide individual attention to at-risk students and help them stay in school and on track to succeed. Join for a night of celebration hosted by DJ Irie at the JW Marriot Marqui, featuring a special performance by Flo Rida and keynote address by Superintendent Carvalho.
