Help me give my students these professional matching business dresses to wear to Virtual Enterprise events & competitions, school, local Chamber of Commerce events, and other business activities throughout our community.
My high school seniors are excited to be starting their virtual business. Our school community has a large percentage of students who are economically disadvantage, but have overcome many barriers to success by taking advantage of the opportunities our school offers and with their determination to be successful.
The best part about being their teacher is the respect they show towards one another, the mentors who visit our classroom, and the staff they interact with on our campus.
They make teaching the Virtual Enterprise program a delight.
The class is broken down into departments and they are working on creating their business plan and building up relationships within our virtual company and broader community. We have a wonderful team of 23 working together, to reach our goals of attending and competing at a variety of events.
The navy blue business dresses that I am requesting for my female students will be worn many times each month. They were involved in selecting the design and color and are excited to have them as our company uniform. Our virtual business required a dress that is neutral and easy to move around in. Our school is located in an economically disadvantaged area where over 85% of our students on free and reduced lunch so we need your help in providing the appropriate clothing. Dressing professionally really helps students to focus their attention on the business they are trying to make successful. It also has a positive effect on behavior.
Donations to this project will help to improve my student's understanding of what to wear to an interview and/or business meetings, in addition to giving them self-confidence by looking like the business professionals they are becoming.
These clothes will set them on their way to build their professional wardrobe as they enter the workforce. As their teacher, I have provided them with examples and taken them to events, but having your support will show my students others believe in them I truly need your support to make this a reality.
