BGS Gives Back

Give back to your community by signing up for a local, regional or national initiative! Your efforts benefit the charity or nonprofit you’re serving, and they set a good example for young people everywhere.

BGS has partnered with organizations like Junior Achievement, the U.S.’s largest organization dedicated to providing youth with the tools they need to own their economic success, plan for their futures, and make smart academic and economic choices. Find your local JA representative to schedule your chapter’s BGS Gives Back activity today!
