Angelz On Deck Inc.: Empowering Youth, Nurturing Gifts, and Combating Gun Violence in South Miami-Dade


United States, 20th Dec 2023, King NewsWire In the face of tragedy and loss, one woman’s unwavering determination has given birth to a powerful movement. Angelz On Deck Inc., a non-profit organization based in Miami, dedicated to empowering youth, nurturing their gifts, and combating gun violence in the South Dade community.

Founded by Rachel Delesdernier, a determined single mother whose 16-year-old son lost his life to gun violence, Angelz On Deck Inc. stands as a testament to resilience and the unwavering power of love. In the midst of despair, the spirit of JoJo compelled her to do for other children what she did for him.  Rachel and her team work tirelessly trying to bridge the critical gaps in aid, preventing gun violence among young individuals, striving to spare other mothers from similar heart-wrenching experiences.

The organization’s primary objective is to equip the youth with the tools they need to rise above the challenges they face and become future leaders. Through spiritual, emotional, intellectual, and professional growth, Angelz On Deck Inc. nurtures youth development and promotes education as a means to combat gun violence.

One of the remarkable initiatives undertaken by Angelz On Deck Inc. is the Changes Program at MacArthur South, which focuses on personal growth and empowerment. Through monthly challenges, mental health components, and garden revitalization, the program’s impact goes beyond the academic, instilling values of optimism and resiliency as well as reducing stress, fear, and sadness. 

In preparation for the upcoming holiday season, Angelz On Deck was one of the few organizations chosen to participate in a special initiative that pairs students with local heroes for a Christmas shopping trip, aiming to bring joy and build strong community relationships.

Angelz On Deck Inc. is gearing up for its signature event “JoJo’s Talent Expo.” This event, which will be held on January 13, 2024, at Joe (JL) and Enid Demps Park, is a celebration of life and young talent. The expo is open to all talents, from singing and dancing to comedy, painting, and sports. Angelz On Deck Inc. is committed to nurturing the gifts of those who have never been in a talent show, fostering their growth through mentorship and community support.

In May of 2024, Angelz On Deck Inc. will have its 2nd annual “Summer Jump-Off” event, a unique gun violence prevention initiative that provides job and summer camp placement, internships, mentorship, and valuable resources to underserved youth. The pre-summer event not only offers fun and memorable activities but also educates the youth about policies, laws, and public safety measures for their protection.

Angelz On Deck Inc. has made a significant impact on South Miami-Dade through their unwavering dedication to the community. They have received support from various organizations and individuals, including The Children’s Trust, Miami-Dade County Office of Neighborhood Safety, Miami-Dade Police Department, Miami-Dade County Parks and Recreation, and the Community-Police Relations Foundation.

Rachel Delesdernier, the driving force behind Angelz On Deck Inc., emphasizes the importance of giving a little time and love to these children, as it can change their lives in profound ways.
