Carnival Scholarship & Mentoring Program
In 2007, Carnival Foundation launched an in-the-workplace mentoring program for high school students. Those chosen are graduates of the HEAT Academy, an after-school academic-enrichment program sponsored by Carnival and offered at three at-risk Miami-Dade County elementary schools. HEAT Academy graduates who meet the program’s middle school grade criteria are invited to participate in the Carnival Scholarship & Mentoring Program as high-school freshmen. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Miami, in partnership with Carnival Foundation, matches each “little” with a Carnival “big” and offers support throughout the year in many capacities.
