Greetings from the Miccosukee Youth Education Foundation! The MYEF was founded in 2002 for the purpose of helping children in Grades Kindergarten through 12 excel in reading, writing, Language Arts, math, science, technology and excel on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Since then the Foundation has had the privilege of working with children, parents, teachers, and administrators in our efforts to improve academic achievement among our participants.
The Foundation is committed to providing quality services and programs in the Miccosukee (Leon County, Florida) and surrounding areas. With increased collaboration and support from both public and private sectors, the Foundation can continue its role in providing enhanced teaching and learning for the participants we serve.
Please view the information on our website. This will allow you the opportunity to learn more about the programs and services provided by the Foundation.
