In preparation for an active leadership role, today’s classroom instruction is not enough to develop strong, assertive leaders. Through Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) and Phi Beta Lambda (PBL), members learn how to lead and participate in group discussions, preside at meetings and conferences, work effectively within committees and engage in practical problem solving and decision making. Members learn the value of competition on local, district, state and national levels by experiencing the responsibility of success as well as the challenge of defeat.
Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) is a local, state and national organization for secondary students who are participating in business and business-related programs.
Future Business Leaders of America can function as an integral part of the instructional program of the business curriculum in secondary schools. FBLA is composed of active, professional, honorary life and national honorary life members and is the secondary division of FBLA-PBL, Inc. Phi Bets Lambda (PBL) is the post-secondary division of FBLA-PBL, Inc.
All chapters and the national organization are guided in their plans and activities by advisory committees–business instructors, professional members, school administrators and/or businessmen and women.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Creating a school climate less susceptible to harassment, bullying and violence is possible. We see it happening in socioeconomically and demographically diverse schools across North America every day. For them, it started when Rachel Joy Scott was the first person killed in the Columbine High School shooting on April 20, 1999. But that was only the beginning of the story. After her death, many students that Rachel reached out to shared stories with the Scott's about the profound impact her simple acts of kindness had on their lives; even preventing one young man for taking his own life. They soon realized the transformational effect of Rachel’s story and started the non-profit organization that is Rachel's Challenge today.
They are the nation's largest organization dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their futures, and make smart academic and economic choices. Junior Achievement's programs—in the core content areas of work readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy—ignite the spark in young people to experience and realize the opportunities and realities of work and life in the 21st century.
