There are so many ways to support our students as an AOF Business Partner! Below, business partners volunteered to judge sophomore students as they presented their business plans. We lovingly refer to this project as "Shark Tank Junior", but our sharks provide students with positive critiques rather than bites!

Raymond James Bond Offering
Raymond James Financial recently provided AOF Students a once-in-a-lifetime experience, inviting them to witness Pinellas County Schools' first bond pricing event. Watch this amazing opportunity unfold for our scholars: Bond Pricing Event Video
And they did it AGAIN!
When Raymond James and PCS scheduled a second bond pricing event, we jumped at the chance to include our students virtually. Thank you Raymond James Financial for always looking for innovative ways to include our students in real-world experiences, even during a global pandemic!
