LEARNING TO GIVE BACK: GROWING CLOSER TO MY DAUGHTER
Submitted by: Ana C. Vega
Since I became part of the One Two Tree family back in 2001, I learned to give back to our community by participating in many of the events that we sponsor or are part of every year.
A few months ago, I was talking to my daughter Anita about getting involved with a nonprofit organization to give some of my time to a good cause.
She is a member of the FBA, or Forever Bloom Alliance, which is an organization led by students, teachers, volunteers and business professionals. Their personal mission is to promote the educational and social well-being of America’s youth.
She invited me to participate and I liked the idea of giving back to our community by helping young people participating in different events.
One of their events is the shoreline clean up at Bayfront Park, which is monthly volunteer work to clean up the beautiful Biscayne Bay shoreline. This area connecting Bayside and the Miami River is important to the upkeep of the beauty of our city, and is now one of the community events sponsored by One Two Tree.
I feel that this is a good way to give back, by supporting America’s youth and also spending quality time with my daughter.

FBA Museum Project
The FBA Museum Project gives young people the opportunity to earn community service hours while engaging themselves on an exploration of the city’s most prestigious museums and art galleries. This project invites students and graduates ages 14 and older to meet as group and tour a museum and gallery. Each participant will study an exhibition or piece in an exhibition for the purpose of creating their own unique presentation. Participants may work alone or with partners when completing the presentation. Once the presentation is complete, the participant will share it with groups or individuals who are unable to experience the exhibition on their own. During the entire process participating students can earn FBA community service hours based on the amount of time spent preparing the executing the presentation from start to finish.
“During the summer months, Pérez Art Museum Miami’s offers youth camps and community centers free art experiences at the museum and throughout Miami-Dade County. This two-part program includes artist-led conversations and art-making at your facility, and follows with artist-led tours at the museum. All materials provided.
