Empowering Dreams

Summer is in full swing, and we are thrilled to share some exciting updates with you all! At Shake-A-Leg Miami, our commitment to empowering individuals with diverse abilities continues to drive us forward. This month, we are delighted to highlight our exceptional Vocational Program, which plays a pivotal role in transforming lives and fostering independence.

The Vocational Program at Shake-A-Leg Miami aims to provide participants with valuable skills and training to enhance their employability and overall quality of life. Through a combination of hands-on learning experiences and personalized coaching, individuals gain a sense of purpose and develop a deep sense of accomplishment. Vocational Education is an alternative path to college and/or universities. It offers a path that imparts the skills and knowledge needed to work in each occupation.

  • Boat maintenance, repair and restoration
  • Operating in a workshop
  • Facility maintenance & shop operation
  • Creating adaptive equipment aids
  • woodworking  
  • Boat brokerage

The Vocational Program is a testament to our belief that everyone deserves the opportunity to pursue their dreams and contribute meaningfully to society. We are humbled to witness the positive impact this program has had on the lives of our participants and their families. Our Legger’s unwavering support has been instrumental in making these life-changing experiences possible!

As we move forward, we remain committed to expanding and enhancing our Vocational Program, reaching out to more individuals and making a lasting difference in their lives. Together, let us continue to build a more inclusive and compassionate community where every dream can set sail.
