NJ Youth Soccer Tackles Education Off-the-Field with a Presentation to Future Business Leaders of America

East Windsor, N.J. (Dec. 17, 2020) ― With New Jersey Youth Soccer’s emphasis on educational opportunities, Evan Dabby, NJYS Executive Director, recently took the time to offer advice to members outside of the soccer community.

Due to his internship experience with NJ Youth Soccer, Alex Hoberman, a senior at West Morris Central High School, invited Dabby to speak about a variety of business topics with the West Morris Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), which is a chapter of the National FBLA Organization. FBLA is the largest student-business organization in the world and attempts to prepare students to become community-minded business leaders in a global society through career preparation and leadership experiences.

“It was an honor to host Evan Dabby as a guest speaker for West Morris FBLA’s Virtual Speaker Series,” said Hoberman, West Morris FBLA’s Vice President of Community Engagement. “Evan exposed our chapters to a new realm of business that we were not familiar with, and his contributions have sparked provocative thinking in our West Morris community. We are extremely grateful for Evan, and we walk away from this event inspired to use business to generate positive impact on those around us.”

During the 40-minute presentation, Dabby elaborated on NJ Youth Soccer’s non-profit structure, how the organization is driven by its vision and mission, and the importance of adapting in unprecedented circumstances, like COVID. While business advice was the bulk of the conversation, Dabby made sure to emphasize additional considerations for the future leaders with aphorisms such as “get comfortable being uncomfortable” and “make your vocation your avocation.” However, Dabby did not only focus on NJYS content but made the experience collaborative and actively answered any questions that the students had for him.

“It was an honor to speak with the group of Future Business Leaders of America, and Alex did exceptionally in preparing me and the students,” said Evan Dabby, NJYS Executive Director. “There was a time when I was in their shoes, so I credit the students for taking the initiative to join this group and prepare for their future. In my presentation, I spoke about taking advantage of opportunities, and they did just that by actively participating.”
