NEWS-PRESS: Building a Future for Our Children

The power of the force not only applies to the Star Wars movies but also to what is happening throughout Southwest Florida through the work of the FutureMakers Coalition, which recently met with The News-Press editorial board.

Spearheaded by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, the goals of the coalition are to improve post-secondary graduation rates and technical school certifications to give the area workforce what it wants: better prepared students capable of handling today’s career demands.
