What did your kids do during their summer vacation? Some South Florida high school students gave up a week of their break to learn how to break down barriers. They participated in a six-day residential program that brought together teens from across Miami-Dade county for an experience called "Metrotown". "Metrotown" was made possible by the non-profit known as M-C-C-J. M-C-C-J was founded in Miami in 1935 as the Miami Coalition of Christians and Jews. We focus on how this potentially life-changing experience works, and why it is so important that it exists. Click on the above picture to watch the interview.
