Review for Foundation for Community Driven Innovation, Inc. (FCDI), Odessa, FL, USA
As a faculty member in the Judy Genshaft Honors College at the University of South Florida, I was seeking near-by community partners who have a positive and innovative approach to meeting a local need. When I was introduced to AMRoC Fab Lab at the University Mall and met their amazing team, I knew I had found an excellent partner. Terri and her staff welcomed my summer pre-college students into the lab to explain both their goals and their challenges, demonstrating the truly collaborative approach they have to engaging with the community. A few months later, I invited Terri to table at a service fair, where our honors students were able to learn more about the opportunity to apply their skills in a meaningful way in the university community. Their presence is mutually beneficial because AMRoC acts as a living example of how innovation and compassion can work hand in hand to bring positive change to a community. I'm grateful to have found them.
