2 - I’ve heard of it, but what is it about?
 
We are a program that trains volunteers in effective listening.  Our volunteers listen to students K-12 who need to share their feelings with an adult that is non-judgmental and does not give advice.  We support our volunteers throughout this entire process with on-going training and monitoring workshops and professional guest speakers.
 
The Listeners/Oyentes Program has been established for well over 40 years and is sponsored by the Miami-Dade County Public Schools, Office of Community Engagement, and The Francine and Herbert Tobin Foundation.
