“Polaris, the North Star is uniquely important. Fixed in place, an anchor. No matter where you are in the northern hemisphere, if you face Polaris, you face North. You know where you are.  But, there are other ways to get lost. In the choices we make, in events that overwhelm us, even within our own minds. What can be an anchor then?  What beacon can we turn to, to guide us from darkness to light?  What if it’s other people? The lives that touch our own, in ways big and small? Because unlike Polaris, the light that they bring will never fade,”  Cassie Brown.

Testimonials

I chose FDLTCC because of its size and the curriculum. When I first came here in 2019, I was just looking for what I needed to volunteer, perhaps in a crisis shelter. I met with Don Jarvinen, and the rest is history.

I chose FDLTCC for a fresh start in life. It had been two years since I graduated High School and I wanted more than just working a 9-5. I was living in Florida at the time, and I had an opportunity to travel the world doing what I love playing the game of basketball.

FDLTCC offered me a supportive environment I couldn't pass up, everyone and everything here at school is trying to help you succeed, from the programs, to the faculty, to the resources.
