Literacy and Learning for Children and Teens @ The Center

Generation Genius gathers the Center's literacy and learning programs for children and teens and brings them all under one banner. Generation Genius' interdisciplinary programs encourage learning and imagination through reading and writing, storytelling, art-making, music, theater and other activities that lead to learning and discovery in the various subject areas.

Our goal is to foster literacy within our community, rearing the next generation of engaged world citizens.

Authors read from their books at the Miami Book Fair or at outreach locations throughout the city, including schools and after-school programs. (Formerly Student Literary Encounters.)

A literacy project for children that bridges art-making and reading and takes place in community centers. The Center distributes free books to participants. (Formerly StoryTime.)
