Fresh Insights Into Florida’s Education Policy K-12!

Are you a student at a college or university in Florida? Are you looking for a valuable experience that can advance your unique interests, relate them to Florida policy, and make a real impact on the future?

The 2023 Future of Florida Summit is your opportunity to join fellow students and make your mark.

The 2023 Summit will focus on Florida’s K-12 education policies. You will have the opportunity to connect with state leaders, interact with distinguished panelists, and collaborate with peers to create innovative policy proposals that address the education issues you care most about. No prior public policy knowledge is required – only a passion for public service.

If any of this interests you, we hope to see you at FOF 2023!
