Non-profit Patrner Feature: Future Business Leaders of America



In our second installment of our nonprofit feature stories, we look to the future. To be more specific the Future Business Leaders of America from Venice High School.
You may recognize them as the smiling faces that secured your belongings at the Bag Check on race morning, but we’re confident you will soon recognize them as the young entrepreneurs starting the next local small businesses and leading major companies.


Future Business Leaders of America share their vision for growing the entrepreneurial spirit.

It quickly became clear, upon sitting down with the young men and women of FBLA, that they thrive on competition. In fact, competition plays a significant role in reinforcing the skills learned in their various business-related courses. The students travel across the state and country to participate in FBLA competitions which include top performers from FBLA’s 250,000+ membership.

Though reaching their goal of victory is important, these business-minded youths are already acknowledging the value this experience adds to their resume. Even more importantly, they understand that the competition isn’t entirely about winning, it’s about setting goals and putting in the necessary work to achieve them. A powerful lesson to learn for those with the entrepreneurial mindset.

FBLA of Venice High School has been an enthusiastic team to have on-board for the Sarasota Music Half Marathon. We look forward to having them back and hope that our participants are proud knowing that a portion of their registration cost has gone toward building strong character in our Future Business Leaders of America.
