T.I.P.S. is a non-profit providing children of the Upper Keys the opportunity to engage in activities that will foster perseverance, kindness, collaboration, and acceptance. We aim to build an increased sense of community around the local youth.

T.I.P.S. supports the Florida Keys Youth Basketball League and donates funds toward Key Largo School’s athletics program.

The committee brings performers and speakers into local schools to present to students on anti-bullying and anti-violence, and also aims to support at-risk youth with the opportunities to attend camps and organizations to promote leadership through community involvement.

T.I.P.S is comprised of local community members that all have a vested interest in seeing the young people of our community have exposure to new experiences, positive relationships, and the knowledge to make healthy decisions.  

By partnering with the schools in our community and the local businesses, we can work together to bring an increased support system to our local youth.
