Village of Empathy
The Village of Empathy platform seeks to engender a culture of civic engagement and social change among members of the Key Biscayne and Greater Miami-Dade County communities. Our vision is to have a community that understands the rights and responsibilities of citizenship and inspires those principles in current and future leaders. We also aim to develop a population of youth that are empathetic and desire to make a positive impact in the local, greater, and global community.
With partners including Key Biscayne Community Foundation, Village of Key Biscayne, Miami Children’s Initiative, Anti-Defamation League, and Ashoka, the Village of Empathy’s mission is to create a Village of Empathy through (1) an academy for civic engagement, (2) a Sister City Initiative with Liberty City, and (3) evidence-based programming designed to develop empathy and stop bullying.
