Exploration of Many Careers
Gaining a bigger view of the world and what is possible.
Our team of experts—youth psychologists, award-winning educators, sociologists, and social entrepreneurs—got together to answer that question. The solution, Benjamin Franklin Experience (BFE). There is a mountain of evidence that shows how to propel teens into inspirational futures. Our team combined these best practices into one amazing program.
Integrity means preserving the dignity of the people with whom we work, respecting values, cultures, and perspectives that may be different from our own, and requiring that the students, individuals and organizations with whom we work demonstrate the same reverence for fair, open, and honest communication and conduct.
The professionals and corporations that create career experiences for our students are high profile individuals, foundations, government agencies, charities, and/or major corporate brands. At Benjamin Franklin Experience, integrity also means being good stewards of their reputations. We take that responsibility very seriously, and that means we are passionate about conducting ourselves with honesty and grace.
The behavior that is expected of our students is detailed in our Student Handbook.
The behavior that is expected of our Staff, Visiting-Mentors, and Guest-Instructors is communicated in our Policy Manual. We also require that all participating adults undergo a State and Federal background check before interacting with our teens.
