GBDC Entrepreneurship Institute (GBDCEI), a nonprofit corporation has a vision of having a tangible impact on unemployment of youth, homeless and disenfranchised citizens of Florida. GBDCEI recognizes that traditional employment scenarios are not always a good fit for everyone and for that reason emphasis is placed on reduction of employment through entrepreneurship education, capacity building of small and medium enterprise (SMEs) and professional development of young and future entrepreneurs.
Our Mission is the development of social entrepreneurs through training, business coaching and technical assistance. Emphasis is placed on young entrepreneurs; to aid in the reduction of school dropout rates and the increase in employability skills and job creation.
We are always looking for new volunteers! Contact us if you have the desire to become a new volunteer or just need more information.
