The Urban League is dedicated to assisting African Americans in the achievement of economic equality.

Prior to the ceremonial check presentation, FCC management took a tour of the Urban League’s new 28,000 square foot state-of-the-art Community Empowerment Center, designed to serve as a place where parents, youth and residents can come to access programming, enjoy social events and mobilize others in the community on a variety of issues affecting their lives. The facility includes rooms for meetings, events and programs, including, a computer lab, class-rooms for financial literacy, workforce development and other educational training, as well as private counseling rooms.

“Florida Career College is committed to making a difference in the lives of others through offering students practical career training ,” said David Knobel, president and Chief Executive Officer of Florida Career College. “One of the biggest barriers to education is the financial aspect. We hope that this donation and partnership will make a significant impact on the services that the Urban League needs every day to get members of the local community on track for a successful career and overall brighter future.”

Among those from FCC who joined Knobel at the Urban League’s Community Empowerment Center were Senior Vice President of Operations Martin Najarro; Vice President of Student Development Lawrence Avers and; Vice President of Marketing Erik Brodie, along with Urban League President and Chief Executive Officer Germaine Smith-Baugh and Vice President Joe Toliver.
