FLYi Fest

2016 Bezos Scholar Debora Gonzalez and educator Jeff Dearing worked to ease the transition of new arrivals into the local community and empower them to succeed through FLYi Fest.

FLYi Fest brought together several Miami, Florida community leaders dedicated to helping recent immigrants transition into Miami through a coordinated network of existing educational and support resources. The festival focused on supporting newly-arrived immigrants. In addition to the the day-long festival, FLYi Fest featured a mentoring program between high school students from every campus of the School for Advanced Studies and mentees from middle schools in the surrounding areas of each campus.
