In September 2016, Miami Beach Youth Commission was designated to provide the youth of Miami Beach with a vehicle to learn about government, participate in the process of City government, represent and articulate the needs of youth in the City, and provide recommendations to the Mayor and City Commissioners on issues and programs affecting the youth and teen population in the City.

The Youth Commission #MBHistory series provides for five 30-minute livestreamed segments focusing on the role of Black, Jewish, Hispanic, and LGBTQ Miami Beach community
members who contributed to making Miami Beach a global tourist destination and model of tolerance despite years of what some have described as intolerance. The program,
#MBHistory, will form the basis of a new curriculum(teacher guide) on Miami Beach history that will be offered free of charge to public and private schools throughout the city.
All segments are available on the City’s YouTube channel as follows:
