The TREY Project

The TREY Project , Through Reaching Every Youth, is this year’s state project,and the purpose is to help members understand the accessibility issues and opportunities for inclusion for students with special challenges and needs. Members will have the opportunity to explore legal requirements, assistive technology practices, and design innovative ways for FBLA members with special challenges to have their time to shine. The TREY Project will include fundraising and raising awareness with the Georgia Tools for Life Program.

Chapters, a great way to get involved with the state project is partnering with related organizations such as CTI (Career & Technical Instruction), Special Olympics, Tools for Life and others. For example, a simple way to partner with a related organization is to help out at the Special Olympics. Whether it is raising money or volunteering at a Special Olympics event, members should get involved and help raise awareness for accessibility issues and opportunities for inclusion.
