Students Becoming Entrepreneurs!

My students need sewing machines, a screen printing machine and supplies to learn to open and manage a small business within our school.

My Students

My students are compassionate and considerate and love learning in a small setting. We are an alternative school with a free and reduced-price lunch rate of 46%. Many students are experiencing or have overcome obstacles in their lives but continue to strive to make their futures better.

I love teaching and interacting with my students - each has a unique story and view of their future goals, but the commonality among them is their caring nature and acceptance within our school.

My Project

My students want to learn all aspects of how to run a business! They have expressed their desire to start a screen printing and textiles business within our school.

My students have a creative talent that can be greatly enhanced given additional instruction and tools!

By starting their school business, they will learn business, marketing, textile and sewing skills, cost analysis vs. profit, and how to give back to their school community by contributing back. During this time they will also learn the importance of career and employability skills.

The sewing machines will be used to teach sewing skills, and the screen printing machine will be used to personalize these projects as well as to create school t-shirts and caps that we can sell to bring revenue into our school business.
