Participate in NSBE’s Pre-College Initiative (PCI) programs by becoming a NSBE Jr member. NSBE Jr membership is available to all students in grades 3–12. 

We encourage you to participate with a chapter. NSBE Jr chapters may be affiliated with schools, churches or other community organizations. Use the search tool below to find a chapter in your area now.


Membership Dues

Membership fee is $5 annually. There may be additional chapter and regional dues you have to pay to be considered a fully active member.
