Global Governance Advisors’
Global Governance Advisors (GGA) includes “giving back to our community” as a core value of our corporate culture. The GGA staff identifies meaningful programs and partnerships that empower individuals living with developmental disabilities and youth in underserved communities.
GGA personnel have acted in senior leadership roles within Future Possibilities for Kids (“FPK”), a community-based organization that operates in the Greater Toronto Area. FPK works with children in underserved communities and helps them become leaders through the creation of meaningful Goals of Contribution to help their local communities.
For Individuals With
GGA has donated a 10,000 square foot fully-equipped kitchen, at the Inverrary Golf Resort, to Florida International University (FIU) and their Hospitality Program. FIU will establish a Culinary Institute to train neurotypical and Autistic students as specialty chefs and hospitality personnel. The culinary institute will provide room service and meals for conferences and events at the hotel and keep 100% of the proceeds. FIU has committed to promote job creation for autistic young adults. The hotel will also employ Autistic adults from FIUs Embrace program.
Providing For Families
Living With Autism
In early 2012, GGA purchased its first vacation home in Sandestin, Florida to serve the needs of families living with autism. The GGA team raised $2 million for this initial residential property on Florida’s Emerald Coast that offers no-cost vacation stays to children with autism and their families. GGA Senior Partner, Luis Navas, has firsthand experience with autism, as his son developed a regressive form of the condition at age 2. Mr. Navas describes his motivation for purchasing the Emerald Coast vacation house, which comfortably sleeps 14, as stemming from a conversation he had with a corporate CEO who had quietly contributed most of his income to charitable endeavors.
