Who We Are
Greater Miami Service Corps (GMSC) is a 501 (C) (3), non-profit youth service organization, established in July 1990. The non-profit was established through the efforts of Mayor Stephen P. Clark, Congresswoman Carrie P. Meek; Miami-Dade County Commissioner, Barbara J. Jordan; AFL-CIO Representative, Marty Urra and many others. The objectives of the non-profit are to address the needs of Opportunity Youth including community service and volunteerism; involvement of young people in addressing the physical and social conditions of their community; structured, meaningful work experiences; and “comprehensive educational” opportunities.
Young people are able to “earn while they learn” through the integration of work-based learning with academics that allow young people to contribute positively to their community while progressing towards personal, career, and educational goals.
Greater Miami Service Corps “Seeks to empower young people with the tools needed to transform their lives through education and service activities that strengthen our community and local workforce.”
Core Values are centered on maintaining a CLEAR Vision of Community, Leadership, Education, Accountability, and Respect.
