Business Entrepreneurship Apprenticeship Program Launches at Metro for girls

Business Apprenticeship Program sponsored by PwC
Teacher: Erin Kelly
Assistant Teacher: Monica McCormack

12 Students, 3 Business Teams

TEAM 1: "M.A.C. Snacks"
Sold healthy desserts to students after lunch. The product they chose after doing market research was a frozen fruit bar in various flavors.

TEAM 2: "Plumas"
Sold handmade hair bows, headbands, and feather extensions. 

TEAM 3: "Forever Metro"
Designed a new tee-shirt for metro, incorporating symbols of the original logo. The T-shirts read: Love Metro, with the symbols below. They were sold in three colors: Purple, Blue, & Black, with hot pink letters.

Forever Metro made the most profit, but all three companies were very close in numbers.

The girls attended the follow career exploration excursions:

  • GE Hispanic Forum
  • Sage Products
  • PepsiCo
  • PwC 
  • Vera Bradley Factory 
  • College visit to the University of Notre Dame
