Review for Foundation for Community Driven Innovation, Inc. (FCDI), Odessa, FL, USA
I love FCDI!! Terri Willingham introduced me to two FIRST Robotics teams in Pasco County. I was looking for a student to work with to teach manufacturing and machining as a pilot for the apprenticeship program over a year and a half ago, that was under development at the time.
Words cannot describe the impact these students have had on me, both Ryder and Vishal are the epitome of what the next generation should strive to be. What they learned while on the FIRST teams are things that cannot be taught at school. These students still blow my mind on a daily basis and gives me hope for the next generation.
Because of the relationship FCDI has with these students, I was able to easily identify the depth of talent inside each group and know, without a doubt, the time invested in these kids would never be in vein.
We love FCDI and hope more people can experience the potential of the next generation.
It has been an extreme honor to witness this with my own eyes! These kids truly are our future!
