FBLA-PBL Creed

    

I believe education is the right of every individual. 

 

I believe the future depends on mutual understanding and cooperation among business, industry, labor, religious, family and educational institutions, as well as people around the world. I agree to do my utmost to bring about understanding and cooperation among all of these groups.

 

I believe every person should prepare for a useful occupation and carry on that occupation in a manner that brings the greatest good to the greatest number.
 

I believe every person should actively work toward improving social, political, community, and family life.
