About Us

The Future Business Leaders of America chapter in Florence is relatively new in the last few years. The program focuses on developing high school students in the area of business and leadership. Various experiences and activities are held throughout the year to engage our students and to help them develop.

Project Based Learning engages in the Big Idea Project. This project allows students to develop a business plan for a fictional business. These students compete with other students across the state for cash prizes. This program provides real life experiences that these students can learn from and grow from. Within this program is also a stock market project as well.
