I have been volunteering for the Delaware Association of Business Professionals of America since 2011. In 2017, I was given the privilege becoming a Board Member.

JPMorgan Chase volunteers helped make the annual Business Professionals of America (BPA) Delaware State Leadership Conference a success. Held at Dover Downs at the end of February, the firm had more than 20 volunteers presenting in sessions throughout the two days and judging a variety of contests, including digital game design, graphic design, prepared speech and website design. 

Many of the volunteers, including my team members went above and beyond, filling in for judges that called out at the last minute.

  • 440 high school Business students from 27 high schools competed in 67 events.
  • 495 middle school Business students from 24 middle schools competed in 15 events.
  • Approximately 45 middle school students and 160 high school students qualified to compete at the National Leadership Conference.

Business Professionals of America is the leading career and technical student organization for students pursuing careers in business management, office administration, information technology and other related career fields. The mission of Business Professionals of America Delaware Association is to build a strong foundation for our members to help enable them to develop leadership skills to use in their academics and the world class workforce while using their experience to engage future members.
