‘Generation Y-NOT’ is the name of a summer employment program where over 350 Miami-
Dade High School youth have celebrated leadership, learned financial literacy and embraced
Social Entrepreneurship over the past 5 years.
The Generation Y-Not Program is a combination of an after-school & summer employment
program extended to all High School Juniors and Seniors, Primarily in Miami-Dade Schools, that
focuses on Financial Literacy, Leadership and Social Entrepreneurship. It is funded by South
Florida Workforce and the City of Miami Beach and supported by countless other organizations
and corporations in South Florida.
This celebration allowed UNIDAD of Miami Beach conduct fundraising and create awareness in
the community. Proceeds of tickets sold for this game were donated to UNIDAD of Miami Beach
and 50 youth participated in giving the Miami Heat players hi-5’s as they entered and exited the
court at the start of the game and during the half-time break.
