Who Are We?

Fort Lauderdale Community Center (FLCC) started in 2002, teaching kids a vocational skill in computer repair and terminology. The mission has transformed over the last 15 years. We’ve been sometimes activists, sometimes caretakers, often teachers and mentors, but always understanding that we must bridge the digital divide, teaching adults and young at-risk children the benefits of computer knowledge in hardware as well as software. We quickly learned that before a child or young adult can receive instructions pertaining to certain skill set, they must first have enough food to eat and a safe place to live.  That is how our nonprofit evolved from being strictly a vocational center to a community center. We’ve been collaborating on projects with great local community partners like Broward community, career source Broward, the African American research library, the Urban league and working with four highly motivated hoa/civic associations in central Broward to bring about awareness for economic empowerment and cultural pride for all residents.
