Keystone Florida has been developed to convene a community of emerging leaders in the State of Florida—equipping them with meaningful networks and a holistic understanding of industry and the political climate. Through mentorship and education, we hope to shape a class of leaders prepared to contribute to meaningful growth and tangible future investment back into state leadership networks.
We believe that Florida Blue Key is uniquely situated to bridge the gap that exists between the world of higher education and the world of industry and politics. By looking to leaders within the state who have true eminence and expertise, and by tapping into networks of influence across the state, Keystone Florida will prepare students to enter the world of politics, industry, and the law– informed and ready to contribute.
Keystone Florida provides an avenue for real, meaningful leadership and opportunities for students. By creating a lasting impact on the lives of students, Keystone Florida will create a returnable investment in future state leadership and an immediate impact on the lives of students from across the state.
Our program consists of four days that focus on a variety of industries in Florida:
- Law and Public Policy Day (Tallahassee)
- Entrepreneurship and Development (Lakeland)
- Agriculture and Agribusiness (Central Florida)
- International Trade Day (TBD)
