Miami’s Leo Martin March of the Living
Eligible teens are Jewish high school seniors in Miami-Dade County. Priority goes to students who live in Miami- Dade, attend school in Miami-Dade and/or belong to a Synagogue in Miami-Dade. Typically, students need to have two out of these three items checked off to be considered for our Miami-Dade program (i.e., live and go to school in Miami-Dade or live and belong to a synagogue in Miami-Dade).
Most interviews will occur on September 10 and September 13 so its highly suggested to get your application in ASAP.
If a student is taking AP classes, the College Board has granted an extension to all March of the Living participants to take the AP exams, which coincide during the trip, during the make-up period. Click HERE for more information.
Miami’s Leo Martin March of the Living is an identity-building program that uses Poland and Israel as a platform to study the history of the Holocaust and examine the roots of prejudice, intolerance and hatred. This identity-building opportunity begins with a six-month journey in Miami culminating in a two-week international experience where teens from Miami-Dade join others from around the world to bear witness to the destruction resulting from the Holocaust in Poland and then travel to Israel to rejoice in the Jewish Homeland. On the program, participants commemorate Yom HaShoah [Holocaust Memorial Day] marching from Auschwitz to Birkenau, they observe Yom HaZikaron [Israel’s Memorial Day] and celebrate Yom Ha’Atzmaut [Israel’s Independence Day] in Israel.
