With sexual danger lurking at home and online, this group is sending a message

Project DoVE, which stands for Domestic Violence Education, teaches students how to recognize the signs of teen dating violence, abuse and human trafficking. Since Miami-Dade police started the program in 2007, advocates have gotten some form of their message in front of nearly 70,000 children and teens. The talks are targeted to kids from 12 to 17, but the lessons can be tweaked to fit the audience’s needs.

When everyday kids learn to be musicians, this is what happens

Donna E. Shalala MusicReach, through the University of Miami Frost School of Music and Miami Music Project, founded by conductor James Judd, are two mentorship programs in Miami-Dade. The programs reach out to public school elementary through high school students to offer free music lessons. The music mentorships build teamwork, self-esteem and discipline leaders say.


A perfect Mendocino getaway

Legend has it that every time a sailor is lost at sea, a mermaid weeps into the waves. Her salty tears turn into sea glass that eventually washes up on shore.
