Discover the career that really inspires you, that would make you happy
Benjamin Franklin Experience (BFE) is a summer program in Greenville, SC open to teens ages 14 – 18. Our two-week courses are inspired by Ben Franklin’s incredible career as a businessman, inventor, diplomat, scientist, and writer.
BFE exposes students to a wide variety of careers via day-long experiences, each lead by an expert in their profession. Fields include STEM (science, technology, engineering, math), art, journalism, law, medicine, and more. One day we work with an environmental scientist in a mountain stream; the next, we may be cutting a music track for a TV show.
Throughout these experiences, students refine their individual talents in leadership, teamwork, writing excellence, creative problem solving, and verbal communication. Each student builds a portfolio of professionally edited written and visual work, bolstering their college applications.
