Students gain tangible experience with money while fundraising for their conferences. The largest fundraiser of the year is our Haunted Park, which students and community members look forward to every year!

Community Service

FBLA members get involved in our community through community service events. Some favorite events are the food drive, carnival, and working with students at local elementary schools.

Professional Development

FBLA prepares students for success after high school through professional conferences where students can attend workshops, compete in business related events, and network with other students and business people.
