    Miami-Dade Economic Advocacy Trust

    The Miami-Dade Economic Advocacy Trust is committed to ensuring the equitable participation of Blacks in Miami-Dade County's economic growth through advocacy and monitoring of economic conditions and economic development initiatives in Miami-Dade County.

    Prosperous neighborhoods are made of citizens that have equal access to the necessities that can assist them with changing their current condition and begin creating a better quality of life.

    All citizens should have equal access to

    • economic development funds,
    • adequate education,
    • fairness in the criminal justice system,
    • availability of funds for business ventures and/or employment opportunities,
    • affordable health care,
    • decent housing, and
    • the sensitivity of the public and private sectors to bring about the systemic change necessary to quell the illusion of inclusion.

    Miami-Dade Economic Advocacy Trust is providing part of the solution to mobilizing Miami-Dade's black community!

    Teen Court Program Hosts Courtroom Training for Youth Attorneys

    Miami-Dade County Teen Court Program (M-DCTC), under the administrative leadership of Miami-Dade Economic Advocacy Trust (MDEAT), will train a new wave of lawyers, bailiffs, clerks, and jurors during the annual summer Youth Attorney Training Program.
    Training sessions are scheduled for August 2nd - 4th  from 8:00 AM - 1:30 PM at St. Thomas University Law School, 16401 NW 37 Avenue, Moot Courtroom.

    About 200 middle and high school students will receive training for courtroom trials sanctioned by the program's volunteer training guidelines.
    These sessions educate and train youth volunteers in the many facets of the judicial process. In addition, this training increases the pool of volunteers who help operate Teen Court year-round and provides valuable information for those interested in pursuing careers in law and/or criminal justice.  

    Legal experts will mentor youth attorneys, jurors, and court officers in the areas of law terminology and courtroom decorum. These tools will sharpen trainees' skills, and prepare them for their first culminating courtroom mock trial presentations. Participants will also receive 24 hours of community service credit for attending the classroom training sessions.
