Register for Founders’ Day of Service today!

On Saturday, November 9, Barry students, faculty, and staff will join President Allen to kick off Founders’ Week with a day of service at Historic Virginia Key Beach Park. You can bring your family and friends, too! In celebration of President Allen’s inauguration, this special service day will offer participants an opportunity to honor and learn more about Miami’s Civil Rights past while restoring the park’s historic and environmentally significant open spaces.

Explore the intersection of community activism and environmental health through the university’s long-term partnership with Historic Virginia Key Beach Park, Miami’s “colored beach” during the era of racial segregation. Contribute to outdoor museum projects, establish nature trails, and help to maintain the park’s fragile marine ecosystems.

Transportation, a light breakfast, and lunch will be provided. Please bring a reusable water bottle and wear closed-toed shoes. Families are welcome.
