With a staff of 150 licensed dentists, hygienists, and dental assistants, Community Smiles conducts dental exams that aim to detect problems early and instruct youth on healthy brushing and eating habits. Examinations can also prevent more serious health conditions caused by cavities and gum disease, such as diabetes, respiratory diseases, and infection. Community Smiles has set the goal to provide free dental examinations for 80 children from low-income families, but the organization requires additional funding in order to complete this goal.

As the local outreach arm of the Sierra Club Foundation, Inner City Outings Miami takes youth locked in urban surroundings on excursions into the pristine peace and exciting adventures of a natural environment. Youth aged 8–18 engage in 25–30 day trips every year, which include orienteering, hiking, snorkeling, and canoeing workshops and service projects such as tree planting and beach cleanups. On the trips, young people also learn about natural science, animal ecology, and protecting the environment. Inner City Outings Miami plans trips to locations within a few hours of the city, such as Everglades National Park, the Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge, and the Koreshan State Historic Site.
