My Students

Our high school students can receive post-secondary credits and become workplace ready in order to be gainfully employed or to continue their education and training in a variety of post-secondary options.

Our Entrepreneurial Business Incubator (EBI) students want to develop their ideas into real businesses.

Teachers and mentors could help students research their ideas and develop business plans. EBI students would learn the value of branding and marketing by creating their own logos, and promotional material. Examples of their ideas are; lawn care, tutoring, selling natural hair care products, jewelry design, baked goods, and custom artwork. Some entrepreneurial students have already developed an in-house social media marketing company to help promote student clubs and organizations. If these Entrepreneurial students had access to laptops in the Incubator, they could work on their business plans, create print materials and update their social media accounts. EBI students could also e-mail their customers and install accounting software.

My Project

Our Entrepreneurial students would be able to work on their marketing and branding campaigns through social media and website design as well as working on designing print materials and e-mailing customers. Up-to-date computers would help students become more efficient and productive. Potential customers are requesting multi-media design projects and we soon realized that we do not have the latest technology to keep up with customer demands such as video editing, music production, and graphic design.

I hope through DonorsChoose.org, my students will have the resources to turn their beautiful dreams into a reality.

I want them to have the tools to start their own businesses and become young entrepreneurs. After graduation, they could continue with their entrepreneurial skills and possibly fund their way through college and beyond!
