Business Professionals of America

Roberts School has a very rich tradition of having a very competitive and talented group of future business leaders! Our amazing kids are extremely busy with academics and sports, but still find time to compete at a high level in BPA. We strive to be the best and will not except anything else. Our kids are willing to try new competitions as well as improve upon current competitions. We have excelled in many different areas, but we are strongest in the categories of Entrepreneurship, Global Marketing, and Presentation Management. On average, we send 4-10 students on to National competition every year. In those competitions we represent not just our great school but our wonderful state of Montana!

Jobs for Montana Graduates

Jobs for Montana Graduates (JMG) is a school-to-work class designed to help students prepare for life after high school. JMG, created in 1990, assists Montana high school students to stay in school, graduates, and successfully transition from school to work or post-secondary education. JMG is affiliated with the Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) program. JAG originated in Delaware in 1979 and has been successfully replicated in 29 states and over 725 schools. JAG has a proven record of success; it is the nation’s longest running most consistently applied school-to-work transition model.

JMG’s missions includes:

  • provide classroom instruction and work-based learning opportunities to students in grades 9-12 which will enhance their career awareness, remediation, self-esteem, and work readiness
  • identify young people who can benefit the most through participating in JMG and prepare them for meaningful career-oriented jobs, matching students with community job opportunities and providing long-term follow-up to facilitate their successful transition from school to work or college

    Montana Career Association
    JMG sponsors the Montana Career Association (MCA) which is a student-led organization for students enrolled in JMG. MCA is a motivation student organization which fosters the development of self-esteem, leadership, decision-making, and assertiveness skills. All JMG students are members of MCA. MCA is not much different from other student organizations in the school such as NHS or FFA. Career association activities provide members with an opportunity to develop, practice, and refine skills necessary for personal, academic, and career success.

    JMG and MCA have four major goals that encourage teamwork and develop leadership skills among all members. The four major goals are leadership development, career preparation, social activities, and civic development. In addition, MCA has four program of work. The programs of work include the following:
    Career preparation—career interest inventories, career research and assessments, job shadowing/internships, competitive events, industry tours and field trips, career fairs, career development workshops, local job service centers, and dress for success. In addition, JMG focuses on resumes, cover letters, job applications, college applications, and scholarships.
    Leadership development—“E” competencies, group dynamics, codes of conduct, team leaders, officer elections, committee membership, and overall commitment to JMG. Students are prepared to enter into “life after high school” with a career portfolio.
    Social Awareness—membership interaction, image-building projects, workshop presentations including self esteem, organizing JMG sponsored school events, lectures, and award ceremonies.
    Civic Responsibility—role models, volunteering, town cleanup projects, election volunteers, assisting the elderly, blood drives, just right reading in the elementary, assisting teachers with projects, letters to Montana soldiers serving overseas, and blankets for homeless.
