Like every other CTSO (Career & Technical Student Organization), Business Professionals of America has a national charitable works organization, to which the CTSO supports. Since the day that BPA was first established in 1963, the organization has supported the Special Olympics. As such, the Delaware association has adopted this organization as the state’s philanthropy- supporting Delaware Special Olympics by volunteering and raising funds.

BE BOLD AND GET COLD and take the Plunge!
Other Service Opportunities
Coastal Clean Up
Trash on our beaches and in our waterways isn’t just unsightly – it’s also potentially dangerous to marine life and in some cases harmful to water quality. But you can make a difference in Delaware by joining volunteers of all ages. Save the date how for the next State Coastal Clean-up, September 17, 2017.
