Our Mission:


We are a multidimensional youth-support program. Our mission is to measurably improve the lives of Miami-Dade public school students through engagement with academic, sports and business leaders.

Our Impact

We at The Home Team intend to create an inclusive and affirming environment that assists in the development of the youth as both students and athletes in the greater Miami area. Through our coaching and mentoring program, we believe that this development will not only further the students’ academic and athletic success but also strengthen their social skills on a personal and community level.



Years Serving our community

We are committed to assisting all program participants that meet the requirements of our academic programs in their athletics and other interests.



Since our launch, more than 3,000 kids have received benefits from our efforts and activities.


Attendance required

The average attendance of our participants is 80% in our year-round program offering.

Our main objective for each volunteer is to be a resource by taking on the role of a tutor, mentor and coach. Your strongest skills will be used on a regular basis to enhance the life of a child.

Our Programs

We identified the current need for an organization to provide a structured, school-based program to supplement students’ public education experiences in Miami-Dade. We use qualitative evidence, collected through feedback from community stakeholders including teachers, school administrators and students, direct observation of current after-school programming, and an analysis of best practices found in other communities and programs.  We learned that students had limited experience with community members representing activities that increase children’s opportunities for success: accomplished academic leaders, talented sports representatives and successful business people.

“Ever since my sophomore year of high school, The Home Team has been a great part of my life. It has changed the man I will become in the future.”

Eliser Hernandez, Senior at Coral Gables Senior High/ Read Full Testimonial.



We are long-time family/friends, long-time members of the Miami-Dade community who emerged from the public education system, alumni of the University of Miami, and entrepreneurs who value the impact that sports, academics and mentoring has had on our own personal and professional successes.
