FBLA-Middle Level prepares junior high students for futures as leaders in the business world. Through this program, students have the opportunity to compete, travel, get involved in the community, and build confidence just as the students in high school do, but from as young as 5th grade. Through competitive recognition, career exploration programs, and membership recognition, junior high students prepare for their high school FBLA experience. This program has truly made an impact on students’ lives.
As more and more communities have begun adding Middle Level chapters, more and more opportunities become available for the expansion of FBLA-PBL! Middle-Level members are more likely to join at the high school and college level because they are already familiar with the competitive events and membership programs. As with any situation, their previous experience becomes valuable. The students are more comfortable at big conferences and know how to prepare for competition.
As the program continues to expand, it touches an increasing number of students. It’s truly the best way to help prepare 5th - 9th grade students for success in high school.
