Florida Prosperity Partnership - Central Florida
is here to help build a stronger community
In the News:
Erick Meza and Debbie Prescott, Executive Director of Florida Prosperity Partnership Central Florida Office are traveling to Washington D.C. to the White House. In Washington they will take part in Michelle Obama’s Beating the Odds Summit.
130 college-bound students from across the country to will participate in this summit. These students are being sponsored by 70 non-profit organizations, and represent a mix of urban, rural, foster, homeless, special needs, and under-represented youth who have overcome substantial obstacles to persist through high school and make it to college. This event will focus on sharing tools and strategies students can use to successfully transition to college and the resources they will need to persist and complete the next level of their education.
This day-long event will include a panel moderated by E! News host Terrence Jenkins, which will feature First Lady Michelle Obama, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, musical artist Wale, and Manuel Contreras, a rising senior at Brown University and co-founder of 1vyG.
