Business Professionals of America - BPA

HP Business Professionals of America is starting their membership drive! BPA is a national youth organization dedicated to promoting leadership, personal growth and community involvement. Competition skills are developed in students as they advance through Area, State and International levels (China, Peru and Mexico are part of BPA). Examples of past commitments to community service involved projects on campus such as recycling and a campus garden--off campus such as Food Bank and National Butterfly Center volunteering--and a combination of both!-such as Trunk or Treat where we prepared a complete Trunk or Treat experience for our community kids.
