Broward UP

We believe there is Unlimited Potential (UP) in our community and have operationalized a movement to increase educational access and attainment levels in Broward County. We know that education attainment is a leading indicator of economic development and health of any community. We also know that by 2020, more than 60 percent of Florida jobs will require a postsecondary degree or high-quality certificate.
