Moore Square Business Alliance is a partnership between business, community, and school leaders committed to educating each student to be a responsible and productive citizen who can effectively manage future challenges. Through the support, dedication, and commitment of our volunteers, we are able to provide a variety of opportunities to our students that help them understand the skills needed to become successful in their future. Business Alliance members assist with career days, practice job interviews, field trips, site tours, guest speaking, and life skill programs such as Reality of Money.
