Welcome to the home of the Future Builders of America, a nonprofit workforce
development and student leadership program of the Florida Home Builders Foundation
, the charitable arm of the Florida Home Builders Association. The
home building industry plays a vital role in Florida’s economy and provides the
opportunity for Floridians to realize the dream of owning their own home, improving
their quality of life and strengthening the family.
Future Builders of America links students in area schools with the local building
community. Guest speakers and field trips to building sites along with opportunities
for summer and post-graduation employment help introduce students to rewarding
opportunities in the construction industry. Club meetings also provide
for camaraderie and an opportunity for students to improve their leadership and teamwork skills.
Students are encouraged to learn more by joining a Future Builders of America
(FBA) chapter in their school. Teachers are encouraged to become FBA Chapter
Advisors and promote the construction industry as a great professional
opportunity for Florida’s future employees. Local home builders and home builders
associations are encouraged to become partners with their local schools through FBA
Chapters and help give students a real world understanding of what it means to be a
home builder in Florida.
