For students who enjoy collaborating with other students and who would benefit from the available resources of the school and/or FFA chapter, a School-Based Enterprise SAE might be the best fit.
In a School-Based Enterprise SAE, students lead business enterprises that provide goods or services. These businesses are operated from the school campus utilizing facilities, equipment, and other resources provided by the agricultural education program or the school and are owned by the school or FFA chapter. It is important to remember that School-Based Enterprises are student led. While the instructor will be available to provide guidance, they are not the primary decision maker of the business. With regular input from the board of directors, the student leadership team will be able to facilitate the ongoing processes and growth of the business.
For students to get started, watch the “How to Launch a School-Based Enterprise” SAE video.
