Firewall Centers Receives Class Choice Award

Firewall Centers was one of eight to be selected out of 20 different nonprofits for Leadership Broward Foundation’s Community project. Out of these 8 projects, Firewall was then chosen to receive this year’s Class Choice Award and a $500 donation!
Throughout each school year, Firewall asks community leaders to come share about their careers and success stories to inspire their students. This year, a group of seven individuals from Leadership Broward’s Class of XXXV came together to help plan and organize the 2016-2017 T.H.I.N.K. Leadership Speaker Series.
A wide array of community leaders spoke at Firewall’s eight different centers to over 300 middle and high school students. Speakers included Captain Kevin Granville from Broward’s Sheriff Office, career development representatives from Broward College, and Baptist Health representatives. These speakers taught practical life skills and inspired students to achieve their goals.
This upcoming school year, Firewall will be serving 11 different schools in Broward County and 600 students. Their newest Centers include Piper High, Dillard 6-12, and North Side Elementary. Firewall’s T.H.I.N.K. Leadership Speaker Series will continue to grow and help students have a plan for their future.
