"Having an employer send an employee through the Impact SWFL program helps that employee not only learn about the local community’s challenges and opportunities but it also shows the individual their personal and professional strengths and improvement areas. The book provided in the course guides participants through tactics that can be easily implemented in their personal and professional lives.”
